Veteran trees and ancient woodland under threat

Ancient Tree Inventory lead verifier, Brian Jones, has been helping the Campaigns team in the fight to save some veteran trees.

Brian has added a number of veteran trees which might be affected by the proposed path of the Hereford Southern Link Road.

Woodland Trust is very disappointed at the Local Planning Authority’s decision to go ahead with the scheme despite the impact to three ancient woodlands and a number of veteran trees.

The new road is needed to provide infrastructure for new housing so Brian’s next job is to look at the wider landscape and record trees that need protection from further development.

Jack Taylor, campaigner writes about the decision in his latest blog post.
