BWOC at Chalfield Manor

BWOC at Chalfield Manor

Chalfield Manor is a National Trust property near Melksham, in Wiltshire. Not only will the woodland capture carbon dioxide, it will also enhance the wildlife corridor along the Chalfield brook using less productive north facing arable land. The long term management plan for the woodland is that it be sustainably managed to ensure both a permanent carbon reservoir, and a supply of oak timber for any long term repairs to the 15th Century manor and outbuildings.
