What work is taking place?

In the next few months Felling operations will take place in Trellench New Mills will commence, to remove approximately 5 ha larch trees which are infected with Phytophora ramorum (more commonly known as larch disease)

As part of the operations, our contractors will also remove a number of Western Hemlock trees from the woodland which are highly invasive, casting heavy shade, making it difficult for other plants and trees to live beneath them.

The work will take approximately 6 months.

This woodland is designated as a Plantation on an Ancient Woodland Site (PAWS) and will be restocked with native hardwood species, such as Oak and Hornbeam and Rowan

We take pride in making sure our forests are felled responsibly and sustainably, to meet all the requirements of UK Forestry Standards and the FSC and PEFC Certification Standard.

Fedw wood is designated as a Plantation on Ancient Woodland Site (PAWS). Our forestry team will restock the site with the objective of restoring the site back to ancient woodland. They will restock the site with a variety of native species ensuing a resilient woodland, resistant to the threats of pests and diseases and climate change.
