CASE STUDY: WOODLAND MANAGEMENT IMPROVES HABITAT
Mr and Mrs Jackson own a twelve-acre woodland adjoining their house in the Home Counties. They were worried about its untidy appearance and a public footpath running through the middle of it.
Following a number of site visits a Woodland Management Plan was produced and a grant was secured to cover some of the cost of the Woodland regeneration.
A number of dangerous trees were felled and left to decay to provide a natural habitat for nature conservation.
“I thought the woodland had to be tidy but I now understand the importance of dead and dying branches in the trees and on the ground. I am now able to appreciate the natural beauty of my woodland”.
