HDA prepared woodland restoration proposals for a woodland estate in West Sussex, as part of a management plan which accompanied the successful planning application for a sustainable home in the South Downs National Park.

The plan aims to increase native broadleaf cover across the estate, and create a mixed age structure with glades and rides. Rhododendron will be reduced, and dead/diseased trees removed. Safe, standing dead timber will be retained for wildlife habitat, bats and birds, and wood/brash stacks will be established as refuges for insects and invertebrates.
