Logging on Holmbury Hill

A forestry programme of tree thinning and felling will be taking place on Holmbury hill throughout 2010. As some of you may have seen (or unexpectedly run into the logging around Resevior dogs) already.

Some of the existing trails on Holmbury will be affected including BKB(see map below). This work is necessary(as it a working forest) and we would ask you to please heed any warning notices of forestry operations.

More information can be found on the Hurtwood Rangers site.

Basically nobody can tell when an area will be affected as it is dependant on both the weather and the timber markets. The contractors have been strongly advised to avoid damage to BKB, especially the new section.
