Ramsey Forest

The Manx Wildlife Trust has launched an initiative to create the islands first forest by expanding and linking the glens, plantations and woodlands between Ramsey and Sulby.

The aim is not to cover the landscape in dense woodland, but to increase the woodland cover from 20% to 30% over the next 30 years. The Trust hopes to plant trees, groves and hedge rows to create a tree rich landscape for the woodland to nestle within the remaining farmland and townscape.  By planting new native woodland the forest should become a biodiversity hotspot for woodland on the island, but the benefits of Ramsey Forest will be for people as well as wildlife.

More information about the project and how you can get involved in the project can be obtained from the Manx Wildlife Trust Website
