Box Woodland Creation at the Wormsley Estate

Following the successful planting sessions last year on the Wormsley Estate, as part of their Box woodland creation scheme, we are continuing our support for the next phase of the project with a series of work parties focusing on a new planting area. The first of these took place on 14th March and was a great success. Sixteen volunteers made great progress preparing the area for planting on the steep wooded valley slopes – the main jobs of the day were collecting up hundreds of old tree guards, clearing areas of scrub and bramble and some selective thinning of previously planted Beech. The volunteers will be returning for two more sessions in April with the aim of planting over 5,000 trees, predominantly Box and Juniper, to establish this addition to the Box woodland extending through the valley.
