Woodland Management: how to look after your woodland

Our North Pennines woodlands offer year-round food and shelter for wildlife and beautiful spaces for us to enjoy. They also offer economic opportunities, through woodfuel and timber production.

Whether it’s a small copse or a hundred acres, careful management of your woodland will secure its future for generations to come. Join us to learn practical management skills including:

  • Planting and aftercare of new trees
  • Pruning for productivity
  • Coppicing, thinning and creating open space
  • Species identification

We will meet at Allendale Village Hall at 10am. The day will be outdoors-based and practical so you will have the chance to get involved and practice these skills in an active woodland.

We will be working outdoors in winter weather, so please come prepared with warm and waterproof clothing and strong comfortable footwear. All tools will be provided.

Cost: Free. Bring a packed lunch.
