Wonderful Woodlands

Cranborne Chase Chase and Chalke Heritage Fund

The Wonderful Woodlands project works with landowners, communities and individuals to help bring local woodlands back into active management.

The project aims to ensure that more woodland within the Chase & Chalke area is being positively managed for their natural, cultural and landscape value. Working with woodland owners, local communities and newly trained individuals, Wonderful Woodlands acts as a catalyst towards improving wooded areas of Cranborne Chase.

This project has been designed to address the decline in rural skills and the reduced reliance on woodlands in our economy, which has left many local woodlands without active management.
