Exploring Primrose Hill Woodland

In January 2000 this 24 acre site was planted with over 20,000 trees and shrubs.  The site was protected with a deer fence and this has created a haven for wildlife, especially, birds, small mammals, reptiles and insects including many butterflies.  The trees in the wood have grown well and were beginning to crowd one another out.  So in February 2016 we started a thinning programme and over the following three years 6000 trees were removed leaving more space for the healthier trees to thrive. Now after being established for more than 20 years, we are faced with a new threat, that of Ash Dieback.  We have approximately 4000 ash trees that are at risk.  Once the diseased trees have been removed, we will be restocking both with sapling species that grow well on the site and with others that may be drought tolerant in light of the climate changes.
