Trees of Knowledge

Are you interested in learning more about the wildlife of the Severn Gorge, and our management of the woodlands and other countryside? Or perhaps in sharing your knowledge and becoming more involved in the long-term management of our land?

Trees of Knowledge was launched in 2007 to include visits, training and lectures about the Gorge, its history, ecology, landscape and management. Please contact us if you would like to attend the next meeting.

The annual meeting on Thursday 10th January 2013, incorporated a presentation and discussion of ash dieback disease and how it may affect our landholdings this year and in future years. Additionally, the Trust Manager, Russell Rowley, took the group of about 20 local people, to see a number of veteran trees in the local area. Following this very intersting day, a group of volunteers have shown interest in surveying and locating veteran trees in our woodlands. Further training was undertaken in April where we surveyed four woodlands and found ten veteran trees. Further tree survey days will be arranged throughout the year.

If you are interested in taking part in Trees for Knowledge or Veteran tree surveys, please contact Nathan Morris, Trainee Countryside Officer for further information on 01952 433880.
