|A number of members of the Independent Panel on Forestry are set to visit the Wyre Forest in order to discuss forestry jobs and landscape partnerships.
It will be the second time that members of the panel have visited the forest, which borders Worcestershire and Shropshire, since the release of a progress report in December on woodland protection.
Woodland Trust policy director Hilary Allison told the Kidderminster Shuttle: "There are currently six ancient woods in the Wyre area that we know are under threat from development."
The forest is home to some of England's largest remaining areas of ancient woodland which has led to both the publication of the report and the visit.
Ms Allison added: "It's crucial the panel make strong recommendations in their final report on woodland protection to ensure the future of our most precious and historic woodland."
The forest covers an area of 2,634 hectares and is noted for its variety of wildlife.
