The intention of the morning’s meeting is to visit Low Park Wood and discuss management options for mixed ash woodlands, with reference to ash dieback. This is part of a wider Ash project run by Cumbria Woodlands whose aims are to bring together woodland managers, ecologists, forestry professionals and regulators to improve communication on the management of ash dieback. Barnaby Wylder, FC Tree Health Officer, will be there to provide an up-date on current research.

We will be with Joe Murphy of Cumbria Wildlife Trust who knows the woods well and will be able to chat through interesting ecological and historical features along the route, including huge ancient coppiced limes. We will walk 4-5km on moderate ground, with some steeper sections (and some muddy sections!).
