Park Wood Footpath - Coppicing

Monday 6th November - Thursday 1st March, 2018

From Monday the 6th of November 2017 to the 1st of March 2017, coppicing will be taking place in the cope alongside the Park Wood footpath.

Coppicing increases the structural and compositional diversity of a woodland by opening up the canopy to provide varying light levels and encouraging a range of different aged trees in the woodland.

This encourages growth of different species of flora on the woodland floor which in turn attracts a wider range of fauna increasing the overall biodiversity of the area.

There will be some noise disruption and an adjacent footpath to the main Park Wood footpath will be closed whilst the works are carried out.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and if there are any queries please contact the Estates Helpdesk on Extn 3209.
