Aspal Close

Owner / Manager: Forest Heath DC

Access: Open access / public paths

There are around 200 oak pollards on this wood pasture site.  The site is managed to conserve the ancient and veteran trees and their biodiversity; trees are retrenchment-pruned, and haloing of other surrounding trees is carried out to give the veterans light and space. Rabbits keep the scrub down, dead trees are left standing, and humps, hollows and other features of the periglacial landscape, all valuable for biodiversity, are retained.
