CHESTER City Council has begun work to improve the Blacon Escarpment woodland.
The work, funded by the Forestry Commission English Woodland Grant Scheme, aims to improve the area in a number of ways, including:
Improve the structure and biodiversity of the woodland by removing sycamore scrub.
Make safe or fell dangerous trees.
Improve access by cutting back overhanging vegetation from footpaths.
Blacon Area Committee chairman Cllr Reggie Jones said: “The Blacon Escarpment is a tremendous natural boundary to our community and these environmental improvement works will enable the woodland to breathe and grow and create greater access for residents.”
The improvements are along the stretch of the escarpment from Clifton Drive to Western Avenue.
