Ancient Woodland Restoration in Action – 5 years at Fingle Woods
Ancient woodland is the UK’s most biodiverse land habitat (having been present since at least 1600) and is the natural world’s equivalent of a Grade I listed building. It now covers just 2.4% of the UK and almost 40% of what we have left has been replanted with non-native trees, causing dense shade across the woodland floor, making it inhospitable for native plants and animals. However, careful restoration can remove these threats, enabling natural regeneration of native trees and plants and helping wildlife to thrive.
Fingle Woods is one of the largest ancient woodland restoration projects in the UK. David Rickwood, the Project Manager, will take you on a virtual guided tour of the site that will share best practice and provide an opportunity to see restoration in action, including Heavy Horses and mobile sawmilling.
Date and time: Monday 5th October, 13:00 – 14:00
Speakers: David Rickwood from the Woodland Trust will be joined by a number of the forestry contractors who are involved in the restoration
