  • Venue: Eling Estate, near Newbury 
  • Date: 23rd September 2020

POSTPONED TO 2021 

We'll take a tour looking at woodland management issues across the estate, including an ancient Hill Fort which is surrounded by woodland, and discuss clear felling and replanting as well as removal of trees from the monument itself.   We will also discuss the work the estate does with a school for severely Autistic children.

Biosecurity

As an educational charity, the RFS must lead by example on the biosecurity measures recommended by the Forestry Commission (FC) and Defra to minimise the risk of spreading soil-borne tree infections. You can make a difference to stopping the spread of tree diseases. Clean boots are a first step!  For further information, please click here
