CLA Deputy President’s Estate Wins Top Forestry And Conservation Award

The Yorkshire Estate of CLA Deputy President William Worsley has won the prestigious Duke of Cornwall Award for forestry and conservation.

Mr Worsley said: I am delighted that we have won this important award. A lot of thought and hard work goes into forestry and conservation at Hovingham. The award shows that good conservation management and commercial forestry can run hand in hand. It also shows the benefit of following the clear management strategy that Hovingham Estate has been doing, since starting plantation forestry in 1897.

The CLA recently published, Seeing the Wood for the Trees, a document looking at the state of England and Wales forestry and setting out the CLA 40-year vision and policy for woodland management. We stated that commercial forestry and good conservation management work well together and Hovingham Estates win is a great example of this.

The award will be made at the Yorkshire Show on Wednesday, 15 July.
