We are talking to Mersey Forest and The Woodland Trust about setting up a Wood Allotment in Spud Wood. A wood allotment is aimed at anyone that is interested in gathering wood for their own use can apply. It would give you a carefully marked number of trees to chop down yourself for firewood in a local woodland that is in need of thinning. See update on Community trees page.
It’s early days as we are just trying to gauge interest to see whether it is worth pushing forward – to register your interest please drop a quick email titled “interested in wood allotments” with your contact details on to firstname.lastname@example.org
