Project manager Andy Howard will talk about the largest new private sector productive woodland in England in over 30 years, approval for which was granted at the end of 2017.

The Doddington site, near Wooler, is 354 hectares, with 268 hectares to be planted – 42 per cent conifers (the vast majority Sitka spruce), 20 per cent native broadleaves and 13 per cent mixed Scots pine and native broadleaf. Of the remaining 25 per cent, 10 per cent is open ground and 15 per cent managed priority habitat.
