Trust prepares for woods work

Have your say

WILDLIFE experts are preparing to fell trees to help a Sheffield wood remain healthy.

The Wildlife Trust for Sheffield and Rotherham is planning three weeks of work in Greno Woods.

The trust said: “It is critical to the health of the wood that this work takes place.

“Some areas will be thinned to encourage future growth of native broadleaf species, and biodiversity will be improved in other areas as conifer numbers are reduced by about 30 to 40 per cent.

Roy Mosley, trust head of operations, said: “As well as being a sustainable source of fuel, this selective conifer thinning in the woodland means more native trees are encouraged to thrive”.

All paths and bridleways affected by the work will be restored afterwards.
