Heartwood forest appoints new woodland officer

Louise Neicho has been made the new woodland officer for Heartwood, England's huge native forest near St Albans.

A trained arborist, Louise Neicho will help develop the site and oversee planting of 600,000 trees at the Woodland Trust's new 350ha site.

The graduate in conservation and recreation management studied arboriculture and garden design at Capel Manor College in Enfield.

"I'm excited because I can help safeguard precious green spaces and develop a woodland that will be appreciated for generations to come," she said.

Neicho will also take responsibility for the 67ha Merry Hill wood, near Bushey, as well as her overall duties for the trust, which is currently on a £8.5 million funding appeal.
