May Bushes Clearance Work 2017
Many of the trees that have been felled on the common have been felled as part of a 'Grassland Restoration project'. By far the rarest Habitats on the common are the grassland habitats, nearly all of which are unimproved. These grasslands were formed 2 to 3 thousand years ago by prehistoric man clearing woodland to graze livestock, the resulting over grazing forming the low nutrient heathland and grassland habitats of which fragments are still remaining on the common .In fact less than a century ago the common remained in its' prehistoric treeless state. We are very lucky to have some of these precious grasslands left which enable us to restore low quality secondary woodland and scrub back to the way it has remained for thousands of years un- changed.
