Over the next twelve months, we’ll launching a number of special projects to help protect Chiltern woodlands. 21% of the Chilterns is covered in woodland, which is double the national average, and over half of that is ancient woodland that’s been in existence since before 1600.
Unfortunately however, many difficult challenges including disease, climate and poor management pose major threats to our woodlands’ survival. If we are to preserve local woodland properly and encourage the native wildlife to thrive, it will require meticulous management and careful planning. We are giving you a very special opportunity to help us do this by offering the chance to sponsor an acre of woodland at one of our sites.
You can choose to sponsor an acre of either ancient woodland or newly planted woodland. A wonderful way to mark a special occasion, remember a special person or just celebrate your countryside, your sponsorship will go a long way towards helping us to manage local woodland properly and, in turn, provide local wildlife with the best possible habitats.
With only a very limited number of acres available for sponsorship, and given that areas will only be dedicated once, this is a very special opportunity for those who wish to invest in the preservation of their local countryside.
We are also offering tree sponsorship, the proceeds from which will also help us to manage Chiltern woodland more effectively.
