The Forestry Commission England and Wales offer guidance on the availability of grants for the establishment, maintenance and improvement of woodlands the Scottish Forestry Grants Scheme was closed in and a new grants system is being introduced in The main sources of information on the management of wildlife species and habitats in the UK are:.
This system will contain ecological information about several bird species that can be found in urban environments. As well as the Forestry Commission, the Woodland Trust , Wildlife Trusts and British Trust for Conservation Volunteers BTCV have wide experience of managing woodlands for biodiversity and for many other objectives, and may be able to offer useful advice on woodland management. The Mersey Forest is the largest of the 12 community forests, covering an area of km2.
There are 12 partners in the Mersey Forest, mainly local councils.

Four million people live within the area of the Mersey Forest, which ranges from urban areas to farmland. Over hectares of habitat including hectares of new woodland, also grassland, hedgerows and ponds have been created since , and around 10 million trees have been planted. Biodiversity enhancement is one of the main objectives of the Mersey Forest along with several social end economic objectives.
A Community Forest Biodiversity Action Plan has been developed as part of the Cheshire Region Biodiversity Action Plan , which sets out objectives and targets for the management of rare species and habitats designated as part of the national UK Biodiversity Action Plan. These actions are translated into management to conserve or enhance rare species and habitats such as the Bluebell Recovery Project , a 5-year plan in partnership with other local organisations to promote this locally rare plant.
The native bluebell is protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act and is the subject of many Local Biodiversity Action Plans.

Several factors have led to declines in the abundance of native bluebells in recent years, including:. The Bluebell Recovery Project is a long-term programme that has been running since , and involves local people, community groups and schools. It is being delivered by the Cheshire Wildlife Trust and the Mersey Forest Partnership and aims to produce a sustainable supply of native bluebell bulbs from seed collected from local native bluebell sites, and to develop a programme of replacing bulbs and seeds back into woodlands. Seed is gathered annually in July from sites identified as having native bluebells, and sown into bulb fields and into trays in polytunnels to build up bulb stocks it takes 6 years to produce a bulb from seed.
Bulb chipping cutting a bulb into segments or bulblets, which can produce flowers after 2 to 3 years was carried out to increase bulb stocks. Bulbs are replanted back into woodlands across the area.
