View Full Version : woodland wanderings, links
In my internet woodland wanderings i came across this link http://www.smallwoods.org.uk/115_Home.asp thought you may like it, im looking out for a woodland to buy at the moment ive got links for sites that sell them but have any of you got any woodland themed sites i can wander through :?: ive got some but i can bank on you guys to come up with some good ones i havent seen im sure :wink: :biggthump
you've seen this lot http://woodlands.co.uk/ ?
Should have stuff around you.
yup got that one bud, :wink:
You might want to check out Ben Law's book Woodland Way. Apart from being a great read it has lots of useful info on grants available for planting new woodlands. If you meet enough criteria you may get enough in grants to buy the land and all the trees to go on it (provided you plant them yourself). I checked the forestry commission site and they are bringing new grants in this year so there isn't much info but if you are considering buying a wood it would be nice if you could buy up some adjacent land and plant it up.
ive been reading about that,that would be a good idea some of the woodlands i have been looking at on the net have some clear land along side, although some of our fauna like the clear edges of woodlands to hunt and live in.The forestry comission site is a pretty good site worth keeping an eye on.
PW i've got a copy of Ben Laws book, I'll bring it to Ashdown if you want a borrow.
nice one :wink:

I have been through all the woods for sale sites in my quest for a wood.Spent days looking at them, in the end I got mine off a customer of mine.When I get around to it I will post a thread about how to find a wood on the cheap.It can be a long process unless you have money to burn.
