During Jan and Feb. 2011, Stockport Council will be carrying out woodland management work in Reddish Vale Country Park.

The work, which includes felling trees and thinning, is necessary to keep the woodland safe and also promote a better habitat for wildlife. At certain times it may be necessary for footpaths to be temporarily closed for safety reasons while work is carried out.

Due to slope stabilization work on the adjoining bank, Tiviot Dale car park on Tiviot Way will be closed to enable the work to be carried out safely.
As part of the improvements, it will be necessary to fell the existing trees on the bank. Following the work, the bank will be replanted with native tree species including Oak, Hazel, Holly, Rowan, Birch and Alder.
