Trees on Box Moor trust

Trees on the Moor
In recent months, safety work has been carried out on trees that had been identified during our annual tree inspections in September. This has been particularly noticeable on Station and Blackbirds Moors where, sadly, many of the horse chestnuts which are suffering from various problems have had to be removed.

A programme of replanting has been undertaken, with a variety of species more suited to the habitat being selected including Common Alder, Red Oak and Yew. This map shows you what was planted and where; planting will continue over the forthcoming years so as to ensure a varied age structure to our trees.

Chilterns Walking Festival - Spring 2017
Grab some comfy walking shoes and get ready to explore a host of locations, landscapes and lifestyles during the Chilterns Walking Festival. A programme of over 70 hikes, guided tours and special events is taking place from 15 - 29 May, in The Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and covers the countryside from Goring in Oxfordshire to Hitchin in Hertfordshire. Take the train for a walk, take a boat for a walk – revisit old favourites and discover new ones, with daily events the choice is yours.

As the Trust’s contribution to the event we will be hosting a guided walk along our ‘blue walk’ route on Monday 15 May, tickets priced at £5 (children FOC). The walk will include an oral history of the area and information on the Bulbourne restoration project. For more information go to www.visitchilterns.co.uk/walk
