Wye Woodland project

May 26, 2016 • Approved in Progress

Wye Woodland Project

The project aims to inform, educate and advise landowners and the general public about protected woodlands of the Wye Valley and Monmouthshire and promote activity that will lead to their continued conservation and enhancement. The woodlands are important for their recreational, economic and landscape value. There will be a series of events.

What are we/the project trying to achieve

The project will address invasive non-native species, deer grazing pressure, lack of sensitive management and visitor pressure. Through a series of training events for woodland owners, events and guided walks for the public and one to one advice for landowners and woodland managers, this project aims to stimulate better management of the woodland resource and inform both local people and visitors what is important about woodlands and their role in the landscape.  These outputs will build resilience in local woodlands helping to sustain them and their value for future generations
