Volunteers help care for Byrom Wood

by Editor

Vital maintenance work has been carried out at Byrom Wood, with thanks to local volunteers who gave up their time to help care for this special place.

Three Volunteer Woodland Management days have taken place in the wood – in January, February and March of this year – with local volunteers working under the supervision of Forestry England staff to carry out some winter maintenance.

The intrepid volunteers have been  helping to create a series of six interconnected ‘forest clearings’ throughout one small section of the woodland. These clearings will improve habitats and enhance biodiversity in the woods in the future.

The group have also tackled the ‘muddy path’ leading to the North Field, clearing trees either side of it and making it much more accessible for visitors to the wood in the coming spring and summer months.

Linda Graham from Lowton West Residents Group praised all the volunteers who came along and said: “Forestry England are delighted with the commitment shown and what has been achieved during these 3 volunteer days.

“Work stops now for the nesting season but we expect to resume in the autumn.”

A huge well done and THANK YOU to everyone who got stuck in to do this for the benefit of the wood and all of us who visit it.
