The value of sporting rights can be of great importance to the economic balance of an estate. Unsympathetic forestry can result in poor quality shooting and a consequent reduction in the value. It is not always realised that the requirements for game are reasonably simple, but it is vitally important to integrate these with the forestry plan at the earliest possible moment.  

This article describes a flexible basic layout for a game covert incorporating all the desirable features for game. In addition, the principles which govern the choice of these features are described so that they may be incorporated individually in existing woodlands.
