Controlled Burning in The New Forest

Annual controlled burning across the New Forest can look alarming but the process has real benefits for the Forest environment and the area will quickly recover. The practice is still widely used in spring time, particularly on grouse moors in northern England, to promote the regeneration of fresh young growth. It also has the additional benefit of reducing ticks and the risk of Lymes Disease.

Cortina. One careful owner.

On a recent recce in the New Forest, I came across a field with these discarded vehicles. “Left to rot and die”.
