Last summer a group at Chisholme, including residents and some Directors, met in the old spruce plantation at Fat Hill, along with Ben Young, the former estate manager and a woodland expert. The intention was to reach an agreement on the next best step; whether and when the trees be clear felled, and to consider future plans for replanting.
