Local MP Sheryll Murray met with the Woodland Trust on a visit to Trenant Woods near Looe on Friday. The Woodland Trust works hard on protecting, restoring and creating the woods that they have acquired or planted.
The Woodland Trust was set up in the South West, and is now the largest woodland conservation charity, spanning the length of the country.
After her visit Sheryll Murray said, “I am really proud that we have so many woodlands like Trenant in South East Cornwall. It is even better to think that these are open to the general public regardless of membership of the Woodland Trust.
“I would urge everyone to take the opportunity to experience these fantastic facilities.”
The Woodland Trust have been working with local youth groups, including Looe Sea Cadets, to help them plant the new trees. Trenant Woods was acquired by the charity in the early 1990s and since then they have been planting new trees every year, predominately the native oaks, ash and birch trees.
