Cheshire residents are being offered the chance to improve their skills and protect the future of their woodlands by becoming a volunteer.
The Forestry Commission has spaces available for people to get involved with the preservation of its woodlands through a number of activities including planting trees, cutting back vegetation, reporting incidents, clearing paths as well as project work such as helping out with events, wildlife surveys and conservation.
Richard Topley, Beat Manager for the Forestry Commission, said: “Becoming a volunteer is an inexpensive way to be in beautiful surroundings, get some exercise or take up a new hobby. There is something for all ages and abilities to get involved with that will help sustain and improve the woodlands and wildlife for future generations.”
To become a woodland volunteer in your area please contact The Forestry Commission on 01606 882167.
