Felling at Longwood Noss plantation 

Forestry work is being undertaken in Longwood over the winter months. We had hoped this would be completed by now but has been delayed due to the recent bad weather. We're trying our best to keep footpaths open but please could we ask you to obey any closure notices or warning signs for the safety of yourselves and the contractors working on site. The long term aims for the felled area is the removal of non-native conifer species and the re-establishment of native broadleaf woodland. Why not read on to find out more?
