The Labour Party at Sunny Brow Farm

The Labour Party at Sunny Brow Farm

The new planting at Sunny Brow increases the woodland on the farm by nearly 50%. The long term vision is to manage these areas to maintain the continuity of long term wooded habitat to support species diversity by creating a mixture of coppice with standards and high forest. There will be sustainable harvesting of woodfuel and green wood for use at Sunny Brow Farm for heating, green woodworking, gardening products and charcoal, with reclamation of any suitable timber from windblown oak for use in restoration of farm buildings. 

Part of the woodland is adjacent to a public road, and it is bisected by a public footpath.
