Coppice of Linwood, New Forest, 13th November 2016

A visit to an area of 18th century Oak plantation within the New Forest, which has been colonised by many of the more sensitive New Forest old growth specialist lichens. This Inclosure had been damaged by 20th century conifer planting, but the last Forest Design Plan proposed restoration to pasture woodland. This has already been partly carried out, but the next draft Forest Design Plan was proposing reversing this and turning the stand into normal managed broadleaved woodland. The visit was intended to update the lichen data for this site, to help inform the future management of the site. We meet at Janesmoor Pond Car Park at SU246136 at 10.30am.
