The CLA in conjunction with Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust, NFU, Soil Association and the Forestry Commission held a well-attended webinar discussing the Severn Treescapes Project and the benefits of trees to farming.
The webinar which took place online on Tuesday 28th February was well attended with speakers from each of the organisations involved highlighting the benefits of integrating trees onto land, and the funding available to help landowners achieve this.
The Severn Treescapes Project is a Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire Wildlife Trusts’ partnership project working across the three counties to demonstrate that increasing the woodland connectivity, whether through woodland, hedgerows, orchards, agroforestry and other tree systems can work alongside productive agricultural systems.
Connecting two of England’s largest woodlands crossing Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire, the ambition of the project is to create a 60 mile corridor.
Severn Treescapes advisors are busy speaking to landowners in the project area about the best options for them and the grants available to help them.
