An ongoing restoration programme called the Northern Study Area Wet Woodland
Project is underway in the Wet Woodland. Like many areas across the Woodland Education Centre, it was
originally covered in a thick layer of entangled rhododendron.
Initial clearance has been completed. In the next stage of the management programme young
rhododendron plants and fresh regrowth will be eradicated. Another task in the
management of the Wet Woodland is to eradicate a thick carpet of non native cherry
seedlings which cover much of the ground. The eventual aim is to increase plant and animal
diversity in the Wet Woodland.
