Wenlock Edge Woodland, Past, Present and Future

On Sunday, we had a lovely day with the Church Stretton Tree Group; we gave them a tour of Wenlock Edge and talked about the history of our trees and past management of the woodland. We also discussed our current management of the area, including our forestry operations and how we conserve the woodland for wildlife and visitors using measures such as providing dead wood habitats, coppicing, and creating rides and viewpoints. We also considered what the future holds for Wenlock Edge, including our 50 year vision and how we will react to concerns over diseases and other future threats.
Overall, a very positive day and we hope that everyone on the walk learnt something new about the Wenlock Edge woodland.
