Starting Monday 8 November until Friday 28 January 2022 (inclusive and including weekends), we will be undertaking forestry harvesting work within the MOD Defence Training Estate woodlands at Everleigh.
The work is necessary to remove dead and dying ash trees infected with Ash Dieback disease and to thin some of the woodland compartments. Thinning is when we remove some of the smaller and poorer quality trees, allowing those that remain to have more space and light to grow. It also opens up the tree canopy to allow more light to reach the forest floor to encourage the growth of woodland plants.Whilst on site, we will also carry out some track repairs and begin reinstatement works.
Until all works have been completed, we ask you to observe and adhere to the warning signs and barriers that will be installed.
These works are being undertaken through the approved Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO)’s Forestry Management Plan, which has been compiled with the approval and consent of Natural England and the Forestry Commission.
