Kate Hutchinson,   has  announced the official launch of the Observatree project today.

You can help us establish our UK tree health early warning system by:

  • Looking out for signs and symptoms and reporting concerns through Tree Alert

  • Inviting us to speak about Observatree at any events you are organising
  • Forwarding this newsletter to any professional networks that would be interested

May 2015 Newsletter | 05th May, 2015

May2015It’s an exciting week, but the SWOG newsletter is bucking national trends by ignoring the forthcoming election and recent royal birth. Instead, we have far more useful news for woodland folk.

  • We discuss recent news to re-introduce the wild lynx to Britain
  • John Clark passes on vital tips about firelighting
  • Fran Southgate of the Sussex Wildlife Trust writes about the importance of wetland areas in woodland.
  • Finally, Tim Gibbs writes (triumphantly) about the success of his woodland loo.
