Tree Management Works at School Knott, Windermere
We started woodland thinning works in School Knott, Windermere on 25 October under a Forestry Commission approved woodland plan. We are working with a local contractor, Celtic Horse Logging, who will be removing timber using horse power in order to minimise disruption and preserve the natural integrity of the site. Work is expected to be completed by the first week of November.

The bulb planting is planned for Friday 3 November and further details about our on-going improvement works here will follow.
Tree planting for the future in Ulverston
On Thursday 9 November the parks and open spaces team will be planting trees in partnership with the Environment Agency, Ulverston in Bloom and Sir John Barrow school children. Invited along will be other guests including Deputy Mayor Dave Webster and Alex Mitton, the former proprietor of Rascal’s children day nursery. This site on Lund Terrace will form one of our newest green spaces and will also act as an important part of the flood defences for Ulverston. The Environment Agency have worked tirelessly to safeguard the future of areas such as this in Ulverston and the parks and open spaces team are proud to work in partnership to support such an important community green space.
