CCFG Field Visit Wales (Oct 2019)

CCFG Event

Date: 11 October 2019
Location: St Pierre’s Great Wood


Description:

This year we will be taking a break from upland Sitka Spruce plantations to visit the extreme South East of Wales and to explore mixed woodland flanking the spectacular Wye Valley. Close to Chepstow, St Pierre’s Great Wood is 107 hectares of mixed plantations on an ancient woodland site, with base-rich soils overlying limestone. Design plan objectives here are to restore semi-natural native woodland via lower impact silvicultural systems, leading ultimately to CCF management, delivering biodiversity, timber and resilient woodland for amenity, conservation and recreation. We are grateful to Natural Resources Wales for agreeing to host us. Please see the flyer for further details.
