Deer Impact, Managing deer to make the most out of your woodland

29/02/12 0 COMMENTS

This one day event led by The Deer Initiative will look at the various issues caused by deer within woodlands and how their presence affects woodland management and potential timber production and values.

Ranger’s will be on hand giving demonstrations in gralloching and carcass inspection as well as simple butchery, whilst looking at venison processing and marketing.

We will then visit Croft Castle, next to Gatley Park, and look at the impact deer has had on the woodlands there and how it affects biodiversity.

The event will also focus on:

  • Encouraging local estates to consider additional revenue by setting up venison marketing;
  • Consider the need for balanced deer control;
  • How Heartwoods can help.

There will be a hot venison meal and refreshments served in the woodlands at the end of the walk.

This event will take place outdoors so please ensure suitable clothing and footwear is worn. The event costs £5.00 which includes lunch and refreshments and is targeted at Woodland Owners and Managers within the West Midlands region.

The event is being held on Monday 26th March 2012 at Gatley Park, Leinthall Earls, Nr Leominster, Herefordshire HR6 9TR

Starts at 9.30am, finishes by 2.00pm.
