BRINGING WOODLANDS TO LIFE

Lost Woods Survey

7 Jan 2021

Since its launch in July, the Lost Woods of the Low Weald and Downs project has been making steady progress towards rescuing forgotten woodland from ruin.

Now we want to hear from you! If you live, own or manage woodland in Sussex in the Lost Woods Project area, you have an opportunity to take part in our new survey designed to assess how we might help support you with woodland management.

The project runs over an area of 400 square kilometres, from Pulborough in the West to the fringes of Lewes in the East, and will put life back into neglected and forgotten woodlands. It is being delivered by a partnership between Small Woods, the Woodland TrustAction in Rural Sussex, and Sussex Wildlife Trust. Plus, it is supported by the Environment Agency and Ouse and Adur Rivers Trust.

If you are interested, contact Amanda for a copy of the survey. Amanda Calvert is the Woodland Management Policy and Projects Manager for Small Woods.
