Wythenshawe Woodland Futures
The City of Trees project is working in Wythenshawe. Woodlands are a part of every neighbourhood and in fact the name Wythenshawe comes from Anglo-Saxon Withigensceaga meaning a small wood of withy (willow) trees - so woodland and trees are an important part of Wythenshawe’s history.
The three woodlands at the heart of the Woodland Futures project are Sandilands Wood, The Brundrit and Ash Wood. The project is seeking the help of local communities to preserve these areas that are vital for the wellbeing of both wildlife and the people living nearby. We also want to make sure that the beautiful trees of Wythenshawe are around for the benefit of future generations.
If you are interested in helping out, City of Trees would like to hear about what you think is important about your local woodland. Hot drinks, tools and gloves all provided and no experience is necessary.
The next community morning is on:
Wednesday 13 December from 10 – 12noon
Meet at The Brundrit (corner of Rodger’s Park) Firbank road, M23 2YP
