Managing Ancient Woodland for Ground Flora - Training Workshops with John Morris

The course will look at ancient woodland plants in the context of different woodland management techniques. Discover the differences between ancient semi-natural (ASNW) and conifer plantation on ancient woodland site (PAWS) felled in 2016/17. The effects of thinning mature beech, replanted areas of broadleaves and unthinned areas of mature Chiltern beech wood (with oak, ash, wild cherry and hornbeam). We will consider the effects of holly removal, re-planting, deer browsing and management, and the issues of extracting timber. Also assess ancient woodland ground flora found in Spring and consider impact of light levels and disturbance.

Pigotts Wood has a well documented history going back to the 1550’s and many archaeological features to see linked to its past management
