Sefton residents who want to find out more about the woodland management work currently being conducted in Sefton's coastal woodlands can attend a drop-in session on Friday 7th December.
The session will be held at St Luke's Church, on St Luke's Church Road in Formby, from 3pm until 7pm, and will bring together woodland professionals from The Mersey Forest, Natural England, the Natural Trust, and Sefton MBC to answer questions.
The session will also offer residents the opportunity to feedback on the Sefton Coast Woodlands Forest Plan, which will shape the future of the area for the next decade.
The coastal woodlands in Sefton are currently the focus of work to protect the area's red squirrels, and to defend the trees from disease and high winds.
The work mainly includes thinning – the process of removing selected trees to improve the health of the wider woodland – and is taking place at Altcar Rifle Range, Ainsdale Sand Dune National Nature Reserve, and Formby Golf Glub.
The work is being coordinated by The Mersey Forest and landowners including The National Trust, Sefton MBC and Natural England, and is set to be completed in the beginning of January.
