Tree Strategy Survey

Please take a look at the Wokingham Borough Council’s ‘Creating a Tree Strategy‘ consultation survey, which closes on 22nd January 2022. There is no need to read the draft strategy to take the survey.

Friends of Fox Hill would like to point out that on page 28 it offers information on which department of the Council has responsibility for different areas of woodland around the borough. Most established woods owned by the Council are managed by the Countryside Service. This is because they have specialist skills. However, Fox Hill is not mentioned under the ‘Woodlands’ section and is therefore managed by the Cleaner & Greener Team.

As a group, we believe it should be with Countryside Services as Fox Hill is mostly woodland protected by a Tree Preservation Order. We will be requesting WBC to change this. Your comments on the proposed strategy would be most welcome.
