Wendover Woods – Oxon & Bucks Division

In the morning, we'll look at the management of tree safety especially Ash Dieback on a busy visitor site with steep slopes. We will also look at the management of increasing risk of wildfire with a visit to 2022 fire site and a chance to share reflections on this risk. In the afternoon, there will be a discussion on the Ips Typographus with visit to pheromone traps and the wider view of other pests/threats in the Chilterns. This visit is hosted by Forestry England.

In the light of COVID 19, we urge all members to read our COVID 19 guideline notes before attending woodland meetings.  In addition, as an educational charity, the RFS must lead by example on the biosecurity measures recommended by the Forestry Commission (FC) and Defra to minimise the risk of spreading soil-borne tree infections. You can make a difference to stopping the spread of tree diseases. Clean boots are a first step!  For further information, please click here
