Avon Needs Trees Enhance our local ecology

New Woodland for Calne

Thanks to the National Lottery Heritage Fund, local ‘ANT’ charity is celebrating its first land purchase, and has unveiled ambitious plans to create new, permanent woodland.

The 34 acres purchased, Hazeland, is in the river Avon’s high catchment area, near Calne, Wiltshire. New woodland here will bring benefits to the whole region – more habitat for endangered species, natural flood management, a space for public learning and recreation, as well as critical carbon capture to help combat climate change.
