King’s Garn Gutter Inclosure, near Fritham, due to start work in October

Updated 10th September 2020

All of our forestry activities are part of a carefully managed programme and are carried out in accordance with the required permissions.

From October we’ll be gradually removing conifer trees and opening up the canopy in this Inclosure to create a more natural broadleaf woodland structure. This will be achieved through gradual thinning (removing some trees) and removal of conifer to promote broadleaf trees to regenerate seeds across the area, and make more open green space.

To keep everybody safe we may have to temporarily close the nearby car park, the exact date for the closure is yet to be determined but will be advertised locally ahead of time. We’ll re-open the car park once tree felling close to the access road has finished.

Safety signage will be in place around the work sites and it’s important that people pay attention to signs for their own safety, that of others and dogs they may be walking.

The work is planned using our approved ‘Forest Plan’ and you can send your comments to
