Beeches in the Ocknell Inclosure, New Forest
Beeches in the Ocknell Inclosure, New Forest
The Ocknell Inclosure has a generation of beech and oak dating from enclosure in 1775 but most of the trees appear to be of pre-enclosure origin (pasture woodland). Ocknell Inclosure seems to have been virtually abandoned so far as commercial forestry was concerned, probably after the fences were removed in 1815. It is now indistinguishable in character from Ancient and Ornamental woodland. [Information from Colin R Tubbs' "The New Forest" (2001) and an article by Antony Passmore]
