Forestry update

Over many decades some of the areas of Havant Thicket have been planted with non-native conifer trees to provide timber for the nation. Forestry England’s contractors will be working in the area until 19 February, removing the some of the conifer trees to start the journey of restoring this area to a broadleaf woodland.
