Oak on the boundary of the North Bentley Inclosure, New Forest
Oak on the boundary of the North Bentley Inclosure, New Forest
In the 1930s all but 0.85 hectares of North Bentley Inclosure was cleared and planted with conifers (such as those in the background of this photograph). The inclosure has a long history of forestry: managed as a coppice in the 16th and 17th centuries, sown with acorns in 1700-1703 and then enclosed. The sessile oak in the foreground is one of the 18th century trees that survived the coniferisation in the 1930s, probably because it was on the periphery of the enclosure, growing on the boundary bank.
