Veteran Tree Work - 2013

This outlines the first part of the Forestry Commission project that will begin shortly to protect some of our veteran trees.

You will be able to see from the map the positions of the trees involved and if you look at the full survey, conducted by Chiltern Woodlands, a picture of each tree and a summary of intended work. Some of this may change slightly as the tree surgeons begin their work.

Additional Works

This will be followed by a "coppicing with standards" project on the roadside areas of the commons and eventually a thinning operation during which we will widen the bottom ride.

See this roadside work map, Christine Stott will update this and the timescales on Grapevine.
