  • Churchdale Woodland Planting Scheme, Egton

    Churchdale Woodland Planting Scheme, Egton

    Churchdale Woodland Planting Scheme, Egton A second consultation meeting was held at Egton Village Hall on the 12 March to discuss the plans for the planting of the new woodland in the valley and surrounding hills. We received a number of very positive comments regarding the scheme including offers of volunteering to assist with the planting. The next stage is to have further discussions with the Forestry Commission before carrying out some ground preparation works ready for planting over the winter period. The trees to be planted will be a mixture of native broadleaf species and commercial conifer, with some areas left for natural colonisation and around 20% open ground with no trees at all.
