Calling all owners & managers of Plantations on Ancient Woodland Sites (“PAWS”)

If you own or manage “PAWS” woodland (Planted Ancient Woodland Site), the England Woodland Biodiversity Group (EWBG) would like to hear from you.

EWBG want to find out if you are considering restoring your woods (i.e. removing the plantation) to a native tree cover (or have already done so), as this is a great way to help woodland wildlife. 

They want to ask you about your approach to woodland restoration and what additional support you would find helpful. 

If you have any views please complete this online survey, the results from which will help identify future support (policy and practical) and the scale of the opportunity and challenges. 

The deadline for completed responses is 31st July 2013.

If you are unsure whether your woodland is a “PAWS” you can check here.  Use the Ancient Woodland dataset and search for your woodland. 

The EWBG comprises representatives from Government, NGO and private sector woodland interests, and aims to identify, explore and escalate issues of national concern to woodland & forest biodiversity.
