In 2019, Warwickshire Wildlife Trust began implementing its newly created ten-year woodland management plans, covering 12 large woodlands owned or managed by the Trust. These plans run alongside a new strategy aimed at making these woodlands better protected for wildlife and people, more resilient to change, and sustainably managed. The first nature reserve to see new ways of working last year was Snitterfield Bushes near Stratford-upon-Avon. This year, management will continue at Snitterfield Bushes, and work will also take place at Ryton Woods near Ryton-on-Dunsmore, Clowes Wood near Solihull, and Warwickshire District Council owned Oakley Woods near Leamington Spa. Other large woodlands looked after by the Trust will see management in subsequent years as the plans progress.
Woodland Management at four nature reserves continues Warwickshire Wildlife Trust’s ambitious 10-year plans.
