Valleyfield Woodland Park to get a facelift

Thanks to WIAT* funding from Forestry Commission Scotland the wood will shortly benefit from sustainable forest management. This will include the felling of trees that are diseased or otherwise judged unsafe plus there will be some tree planting to ensure continuity of the woodland.

The work will be carried out sensitively bearing in mind the wood’s heritage as a former designed landscape conceived by Humphry Repton, the acclaimed landscape designer, for the then owner Sir Robert Preston in around 1801.

In addition to the tree work, the opportunity will be taken to improve the hard paths put in by West Fife Woodlands back in 2008/9. The paths have lasted well but do need scraping at the edges to combat the inevitable encroachment of vegetation.

* Wood In and Around Town – a grant scheme offering financial support for managing urban woodlands in Scotland that are located within 1km of a population settlement of 2000+ people.
