Are we seeing signs of spring too soon?
Worrying reports are stating that spring is happening almost a month ahead of schedule, and this could be detrimental to our ecosystems. Team members share their insights and concerns about the effects of climate change on woodlands and future biodiversity.
Footpath closures in the Forest
To allow people to enjoy the Forest 364 days a year, we need to close our permissive footpaths for just one day in December.
The achievements and legacy of our Green Recovery project
Now completed, the project funded by the £1.7m Green Recovery Challenge Fund (GRCF) grant, has enabled us to make a step-change in our work today, whilst laying rhe foundations to grow the Forest further tomorrow.
Tree planting season has arrived
It is a busy time in the Forest as tree planting season begins. Thanks to our forestry team and volunteers, new native woodland will be created whilst we also continue to create and maintain the other extensive habitats in the Forest.
Wetlands in the Forest
Wetlands provide some of the most biodiverse habitats in the Forest, and we are working hard to create and restore these valuable habitats for wildlife.
