Oxfordshire Woodland Project

Pruning workshop

There are over 2600 woods under 10 hectares in Oxfordshire, many of which are either poorly managed, or not managed at all. Under these conditions woodlands can stray away from the optimum conditions that allow conservation, timber and landscape interests to flourish together. The Oxfordshire Woodland Project provides an advisory service to the owners of these small woods, organising demonstrations and talks and publishing a regular newsletter. The ultimate aim being to promote sensitive and appropriate woodland management. Since 2001 Restore has annually funded a series of Pruning Workshops aimed at woodland owners showing how they can make the best use of this truly sustainable resource without damaging their conservation and recreation value.Restore UKs spring 2012 grant completes eleven years of funding for this excellent project with the benefits clear now for all to see.


Of all the trees that grow so fair,
Old England to adorn,
Greater are none beneath the Sun,
Than Oak, and Ash, and Thorn.
