Dunwich Rewilding Project
Dunwich Forest is currently undergoing a process of 'rewilding', with a long term plan to recreate and regenerate the natural landscape that existed prior to the conifer plantations.
The management of the forest is now a partnership between the Forestry Commission, Suffolk Wildlife Trust and RSBP, with the more northern area being managed by SWT.
The heathland habitat to the south is being managed by the RSPB. The area covered by heathland will increase as conifer crops are gradually harvested and areas of deciduous trees are allowed to revert to heather.
Lowland heath is one of the rarest of all Britain's wildlife habitats and is vital to the survival of many rare species of birds, reptiles and butterflies.
