Oak and beech woodland, Kings Hat, New Forest
Oak and beech woodland, Kings Hat, New Forest
Most of this grid square is covered with oak, beech and holly, the traditional trees of the "open forest". The woodland is not enclosed, and is grazed by deer and the Commoners' stock. The name 'hat' refers to the brimmed appearance of a clump of trees that have had the foliage on their lower branches eaten away by the ponies and deer. As you walk through the woodland you will find very few branches below head height.
