Tree Felling

H and I walked at Sheringham Park this morning and were rather shocked at the scale of tree felling that was being done. This was the response by the National Trust to a post on Facebook saying lots of people are very angry. 'Forestry England is carrying out tree felling work at Weybourne Heath. This largely non-native Corsican pine plantation was planted as a timber crop, which has now reached maturity. The area was planted on land they lease from the National Trust and the trees were always grown with the intention of being sold for timber. We’re supportive of their plan to replant the same area with native broadleaf woodland trees.' It will certainly change the look of Weybourne Heath for many years to come. Speaking to one of the volunteers, she said that the broadleaf woodland trees will improve the diversity of habitat in the area. Hopefully this plan will be longer lasting and less destructive.
