Restoring historic character will be priority at Burnham Beeches

Restoring the historic character of Burnham Beeches will be the priority in a 10-year management plan for the Buckinghamshire wood, which is awaiting approval from its governing committee and from Natural England.

The 220ha site is owned and managed by the City of London Corporation. Information officer Chris Morris said:

"We are trying to restore the historic landscape, in line with our 500-year vision for the woods. We want to expand the grazing area, and create hundreds more pollards that will be of the same quality in 500 years as our oldest trees are now."
