Actions to be undertaken in the LIFE+ project

During the LIFE+ project support will be provided for the maintenance of coppiced woodland which, with its many open spaces and structure-rich borders, favours the development of many species of butterflies and moths.  To complete this type of development, many "light shafts" are to be created in what was formally coppiced woodland in order to create open spaces with blackthorn hedges and therefore provide further habitats.
