Ross and Wye - is very well located - and very accessible via main road, motorways and dual carriage way from all points of the compass.

Main road from of Ledbury/ Malvern, - in the north east

20 miles - West of Gloucester - On the A40

Wales - 10 miles of dual carriage from Monmouth -

South of Hereford on the A49

North of the Forest of Dean

and end of the M50 via the M5 - the Midlands/Worcester

all in all - I think Ross is probably about one of the best places to have a get together.

I live in Cardiff, and my woodland is in Herefordshire ( about 15mins ) from Ross on Wye, so I'd love to come. Would love to meet as many like minded people as possible. Cheers, Dave Howells

If I can make it I'll be there, it's not far from Bromyard.

Here is what Paul and Andrea have:

15 acres of broadleaf woodland 10 mins. drive from Ross on Wye. It was mostly felled in 1984, but large trees were left all around the perimeter, beech ,ash ,birch, yew. The centre was planted with chestnut ash , birch , and beech. I want to manage the woodland primarily for firewood production, so I'll be felling and re -planting, mostly ash and hazel. Although I manage amenity woodland for a living, I would like to have a woodland walk, to get new ideas and new angles on things etc., and maybe others would find it interesting too

Can I thank Paul and Andrea for hosting the meeting in their woodland. I would also like to thank Chris Johnson from the RFS for his enthusiastic input and answering hundreds of questions. I thouroughly enjoyed the day, and went away with lots of ideas about managing my woodland. Hopefully we'll all do it again soon. Many Thanks, Dave Howells
