Firstly, thank you for your interest and for taking the time to support this work.

During these times it seems that, like never before, our woodlands are tremendously important. They provide us with some of the richest habitats, delivering numerous environmental and health benefits to all. Woodlands ‘lock up’ carbon, a major contributor to global warming and we know that time spent within woodlands promotes physical activity, reduces stress and improves mental health (to name but a few of those benefits).

Our woodlands are facing increasing challenges - our changing climate and the arrival of new pests and diseases, for example Ash dieback (follow Important links for detail) have the potential to cause the loss of woodland trees.

In order to address these challenges, Cornwall Council is developing woodland management plans for a number of its sites, your local woodland is one of these. Please take a look at the site plan and project brief for further detail about this work (see Documents).

Surveys of the woodlands have now been completed by our team, the writing of woodland management plans is well under way and it is anticipated that these will be submitted to the Forestry Commission in late spring summer 2021.

You will be aware of the recent public survey undertaken to help us better understand your needs and views. Thank you to all of those that took the time to complete the questionnaire!! The results from the public survey are now available (see Documents).
