Woodlands Management Plan

Three Rivers District Council owns over 240 hectares of woodland from large Local Nature Reserve sites such as Oxhey Woods to small pockets of woodland adjacent to residential areas. The Council currently manages these sites for wildlife, public access and recreation.

Three Rivers obtained The UK Woodland Assurance Standard (UKWAS) accreditation in 2007, in recognition of the work that it does to manage its woodlands in accordance with good practice.

Five years on we are now reviewing the management of our woodlands and reviewing our management plans. It is a requirement of UKWAS that we consult local people and relevant organisations to make them aware that we are producing these new plans and that we are being re-evaluated for certification.

If you wish to make any comments with regard to the review of the management of Council owned woodlands please e-mail these to
