Woodlands Project 2: Meeting on Wed 16th April

Please drop in to register your comments, Wednesday 16th April (6.30-7.30pm) at the Village Hall.

At last December’s Community Council meeting a proposal was made to assess the need for a follow-up to the recent woodland management project. The aim would be  to complete the work that was originally planned almost a decade ago by felling the remaining monoculture of conifer trees (on the Papana Burn South bank at the West end of the village) and replacing them with mixed deciduous trees. In addition, work would be carried out to remove twelve conifer trees next to the roadside beyond Papana bridge, to give space for the existing deciduous and Monkey Puzzle trees to thrive.

Do come along to find out more about the areas affected and provide your comments. All residents of Garvald are encouraged to give their opinion on this matter and the project will be initiated only if the majority of villagers support it.

If you can’t make it to the meeting please complete the feedback form, which will be posted on the website soon.
