Young woodland comes of age at St. Chad's Catholic High School

27 October 2009

As young woodlands planted in the mid-1990s in the early days of The Mersey Forest begin to mature, an important part of our role is to safeguard and strengthen these investments in our community through woodland management.


St. Chad's Catholic High School is a specialist language college in Runcorn which owns 1.5 hectares of young native woodland planted approximately 11 years ago.


The woodland has grown to such an extent that it needs some of the trees to be thinned out to allow the rest of the woodland to develop healthily and fully.


Around 20% of the trees need to be removed as part of this woodland management process, with the resulting timber to be recycled by turning it into woodchip to create a pathway through the woodland for pupils to use.


The thinning will also have the benefit of improving the lines of sight within the woodland to help reduce antisocial behaviour.
