Across the UK, our Partners in Action are working on diverse woodland projects, and it is exciting to see the progress made!
Many of the teams have been planting native trees to help support wildlife and reduce climate change impacts. At Bryn Gobaith Farm in South Wales (pictured below), over 500 saplings have been planted along hedge lines to create windbreaks and provide food for the many berry-eating birds and mammals using the farm.
At St Edwards School in Hampshire, the team are developing a new wood pasture and oak growing nursery. Wood pasture is less dense than traditional woodland, but is a fantastic habitat for many of our T25 species, including hedgehog, spotted flycatcher, and a range of bat species.
Drumalis retreat centre in Northern Ireland (pictured below) has 19 acres of deciduous woodland, lowland meadows, ponds and formal gardens. Around 800 trees have been planted in two different areas, the new native woodland providing a valuable new home for a wide range of species, including warblers, small mammals and insects.
At retreat and conference centre, Ashburnham Place in East Sussex, work continues to plant an edible food forest led by our Partner in Action Coordinator, Regina Ebner. Food forests are landscapes that provide food from ground to canopy and can be great for people and nature.
