Tree planting at Croft Castle

The Quarry Oak, a 1,000-year-old sessile oak tree, at Croft Castle, Herefordshire

Whilst planning continues for the woodland pasture management project, our rangers have been busy restoring other woodland areas within Croft's 1500 acre parkland.

Felling and re-planting work has been carried out in school wood, which is a Plantation on Ancient Woodland Site. This will help to improve the biodiversity for wildlife and turn it back into natural woodland.
Trees planted are a mixture of Sessile Oak, Common Oak and Bird Cherry along with Rowan, Hazel, Maple and Lime trees. Our one thousand year old sessile oak can be seen above.
