The Woodland Trust – translocating ancient woodland soil
Name: The Woodland Trust
Location: Grantham, Lincolnshire
Project summary: A study on effectiveness of translocating ancient woodland soil.
Detailed summary: We are looking for someone to research a comparison of undisturbed ancient woodland soil against ancient woodland soil that has been translocated for the purposes of development.’ This can be approached in several ways, but would most likely need to look into the characteristics and retained features of ancient woodland soil once it has been stripped, stored and moved to a new area to act as the soil of a new compensation/plantation woodland.
