Community woodlands are extremely diverse, embracing all woodland types from ancient semi-natural woods to extensive conifer plantations, and ranging from less than a hectare to over a thousand hectares in size. Likewise, the communities involved range from crofting townships in the far north and west to small towns and inner-city communities in the central belt.
Some of the larger groups now employ staff to manage and develop their woods, while others are managed entirely by volunteers. http://www.communitywoods.org Nobody said it was going to be easy !!
