The first step to replanting The Warren
On 6th February 2020, executives from the Tree Council and DEFRA (Department for environment, food and rural affairs) held a team building day in Harting. The time spent here helped to highlight the impact of ash dieback and the challenges faced on a national basis as the disease spreads. The management of ash dieback and the regeneration of The Warren is setting an example to other local authorities, land owners and environmental organisations
Approximately 400 trees and shrubs were planted at the top, southern end of the Warren.
Time for the restoration to begin
The Tree Council, a national charity, have awarded the parish a huge grant of £32,179.00 in support of the regeneration and woodland management programme. This will enable us to buy 4,300 sapling shrubs and trees to restore our woodland.
