Woodland Restoration joint event with Woodland Trust – Great Heron Wood, Kennardington, Kent

21 March

Prior to the 20th Century, most of Britain’s ancient woodlands were “working woods” which were regularly coppiced for charcoal or firewood as part of the local economy. This kept the trees in good health and the varied heights were the perfect habitat for birds and wildlife. After years of neglect and overgrown coppice, Great Heron Wood in Kent is slowly being restored to its former glory. The Woodland Trust’s Jim Smith-Wright will join the SWA’s David Cracknell in explaining how to reintroduce management into your wood for wildlife biodiversity.

10:30am
