Visit to Forestry Commission Woodlands in SE

John Wilding took me along with him today to visit contacts in FC SE to find out more about Heathland Restoration, Community Engagement, Education and Plantations on Ancient Woodland Sites and their management. We were also interested in car park management and looking at initiatives to develop new income streams. 12 hour day but worth every minute. Our hosts were exemplary - such a professional team at FC SE. We have learnt a lot and most of it transferable to our woodland management back in Devon and particularly relevant to our current public consultation regarding our future management of the East Devon Pebblebed Heaths. Key message is that engagement with local communities is essential... We are already on the case!

Thank you John for organising this and driving there and back - much appreciated...
