New roadside fence for Angling Spring Wood

This is a very beautiful piece of woodland, owned by Chiltern District Council and managed as a community wood which you can find out more about by visiting

There was a need for a new roadside fence and in the wood there was also a 24 year old larch plantation, which needed thinning. It made sense to put the two together.

The poorest trees were felled and then extracted by horse to a clearing ready to be milled. The new fence was erected shortly afterwards.

This is an example of management and utilisation of a small parcel of larch thinnings. There was not sufficient quantity of timber to interest conventional markets and tractor extraction would have caused damage to footpaths.
