Improving site access for harvesting and sustainable woodland management - making management easier at Fingle woods

Read how access improvements have made woodland management easier at Fingle woods...

Narrow roads and rural pathways can mean that accessing ancient woodland sites is one of the biggest problems for restoration, harvesting and sustainable woodland management.

Fingle Woods in Devon, managed by the Woodland Trust and National Trust, has undergone multiple entrance improvements to allow easy access for timber harvesting and the general public. As a result, this will help the restoration project at Fingle to harvest sustainably, increase timber extractions and cut haulage costs.
