Multi-million pound scheme unveiled to create new forest

ENGLAND'S largest continuous new native forest is to be planted in Hertfordshire by the Woodland Trust – the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity.

The broadleaf woodland will cover 850 acres near St Albans and the Trust aims to plant more than 600,000 native trees in its creation at a cost of £8.5 million.

Trust Chief Executive Sue Holden says: “Woods make a difference to people’s well being. We estimate that two million people live within 15 miles of Sandridge alone and the wood will provide a large and accessible space for
people at a time when there is pressure to build on land in the south east.”
