A Recently Created Woodland Clearing at Ashridge
A Recently Created Woodland Clearing at Ashridge
Natural woodland contains a mixture of trees of different ages, but in this area nearly all the trees are of a similar age. Woodland management involves creating small areas to allow the light to reach the grounds, and seedlings grow, insuring a wider range of woodland habitats. In the foreground trees were cleared several years ago, while to the left fences were placed to provide small areas that could not be grazed by deer. In the background further clearance took place more recently.
The Ashridge National Trust Estate :: SP9713
The Ashridge Estate covers a wide area of the Chiltern Hills on the Hertfordshire Buckinghamshire border, which provides open access to large woods and open grassland. There are many footpaths and bridleways - including part of the Ridgeway – and wonderful opportunities to observe wild life – including deer.
The Estate Office, Visitor Centre and Café are close to the Bridgewater Monument on Moneybury Hill, above the village of Aldbury.
