Post Closure Oxfordshire Woodland Project

The Oxfordshire Woodland Project will close on 17th January 2014.
The OWP has undertaken significant woodland related work in Oxfordshire over the past 30 years having visited and advised the owners of over 500 small woodlands on how to bring these woods back into active management. Unfortunately the Project has now secumbed to the inevitable due to the withdrawal or reduction in the level of funding provided by some of the original contributing local authority partners.

The Trustees of the Oxfordshire Woodland Group would like to thank the Oxfordshire Woodland Project manager - David Rees for all of the important work that he and his predecessor Ken Broad have undertaken in the county.

The Oxfordshire Woodland Group will now be focussing on how they can employ new low cost, efficient and effective ways of promoting the active management of woodlands both in the county and beyond and welcomes approaches by individuals, organisations, local authorities and companies who would like to support our work.

Ken Hume - Executive Trustee - The Oxfordshire Woodland Group
