Friends of the Grove and Churston Woods

This group was formed following the clearance of diseased trees at Churston Woods and the Grove in 2017.

The area was cleared when a significant number of larch and sweet chestnut trees, showing signs of disease at the Grove and Ball Copse, were felled on advice from The Forestry Commission. The Trust set up a crowdfunding campaign to help raise vital funds and awareness to help restore this semi ancient woodland. A staggering 4,800 trees were planted in their place. To find out more about this group, please contact us.
