How does the Council manage Reading's woodlands?

In partnership with the Forestry Commission, and in consultation with friends groups, we have produced Woodland Management Plans for 90 hectares of Reading's woodlands (across 18 sites) starting in 2013. Implementation of the management plans will involve significant wildlife, amenity and community benefits - and the Forestry Commission will part fund the works through the England Woodland Grant Scheme. Following a public consultation event over the summer of 2013, the woodland management plans were adopted by us on the 26th November 2013 - the adopted plans for each specific area along with a general map of Reading's woodlands can be downloaded below.
