At Glenny Wood we treat managing our site very seriously and one of the key elements is conservation, managing the woodlands and ensuring a habitat for wild animals native to the area.
On a now annual basis Oli Frost Forestry and Arboriculture Ltd http://www.ofrostarbor.co.uk/index.html visits the site and undertakes an inspection. Following this an action plan is drawn up to put the recommendations into place.
All our trees on site have a Tree Preservation Order on them, so we take time to work with North Somerset Council and the Forrestry Commission to get the necessary permissions to undertake any works required.
We have undertaken an extensive planting programme since 2007. With fabulous support from the Woodland Trust https://shop.woodlandtrust.org.uk we have planeted around 4000 little tree shoots from their woodland packs. Most of these have taken and can be seen as the hedgerows on site.
In addition we have held
2 sponsor tree events.
A mega thank you to all those supporting Glenny Wood.

In November 2007 we planted 50 trees, between 6 - 8 feet high and the great news is the vast majority of these have taken and grown into more mature trees
In November 2019 we planted a further 50 trees around 6 feet high and we look forward to seeing them grow over the next few years.
Yes we have had to have trees removed as they near the end of their life span, however we are ensuring Glenny Wood is now managed so the future users benefit from a natural woodland.
The Glenny Wood Motto is
"take nothing but photographs and memories, leave nothing but footprints"
