Private Landowners

Do you need help and advice as to how to manage your own woodland or natural area?  We offer both to private landowners for an agreed fee.  Frequently the costs can be reduced if we work with other funders at the same time – see the example below.  Please contact us to discuss your needs and wishes.

Chilterns Conservation Board (CCB) and BBOWT 

Through collaborative partnership working with the Chilterns Conservation Board (CCB) and BBOWT , we have provided practical management to four Local Wildlife Sites within the Radnage Valley Biodiversity Opportunity Area. This work has focused on restoring chalk grassland, a Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) priority habitat. We brought in our Green Thursday team and our partners at Thames Valley Probationary Service Community Payback Team, together with our trained staff using chainsaws and brushcutters who set about improving several areas of chalk grassland that were beginning to become swamped by scrub. This work was funded in part by the land owner and subsidised by the CCB with BBOWT providing their alpine tractor and a driver for a morning. This work would not have been possible without a partnership approach and we hope it can continue in the future, much depends on the help of the land owners. If you have land that is in need of some TLC then please get in contact and we will try to help you.

Working at Naphill Common

Naphill Common is owned by the National Trust and managed by the Friends of Naphill Common who have worked with us to clear footpaths and ponds. Other local organisations have also been involved including the Guides and Schools.

This is just to thank you once again for your work with us. We hope to have the opportunity to do more with you.
