Following the July inspection of the Bricket Wood Common with the Joint Management Committee, Henry Holland Hibbert issued the following blog about the forthcoming work:
Woodland Work on Bricket Wood Common
Following the approvals which have been given by Natural England, The Forestry Authority and St Albans District Council, the work to carry out some woodland maintenance and improvement to Bricket Wood Common will commence shortly. This is going to be a gradual process of work spanning about five years and will see some timber extraction from the common in order to improve the remaining trees and woodland structure.
Two timber stacking points and loading bays are in the process of being constructed on land belonging to Munden Estate, with access to both sites being along School Lane. Some work is being carried out to remove small trees and scrub that is close to the sides of School Lane to facilitate vehicle access and safety and in order to address some health and safety issues.
It is planned that the woodland improvement work and some timber extraction will start this autumn although the exact timetable and location for the first phase of work is still under discussion.
Updates on progress will be uploaded to the blog on the District Council website at:
