A woodland management plan has been formulated by South Hams District tree officer for the popular recreational open space at the top of town known locally as ‘The Berry’. The main objectives are to apply professional expertise to maintain the woodland as an important landscape feature by diversifying the age structure and species of trees found there. It is also intended to enhance and maintain the conservation value of the woodland. Tree safety is also recognised as an important element to the plan and the need for a sympathetic approach to some of the older species of tree will be necessary. The whole 2.7 hectare area maintenance is the responsibility of the town council and this work is seen as a pro-active decision that will greatly benefit everyone in the future.
