Warren Farm - Ampthill



Latest News


7th September 2011


Specialist forestry management contractors have entered the

woodland to the south of the Warren Farm site today to carry

out woodland management work. This is not related to the

allocated residential development on land north of the

trees, and instead is part of the management work

required to look after the woodland here. The work

involves thinning the woodland by removing every other

row of trees. This allows the trees to grow to maturity

in a healthy fashion and helps to prevent the spread

of a common fungal infection that is presently

visible as black spots and patches in the trees foliage.
