Over the past year (2021-2022), the Sherwood Forest Trust (SFT) has been working with landowners and partner organisations to conserve and restore heathland sites in Nottinghamshire.

Many of these sites had become overgrown with scrub and trees, and the heather lacked diversity and varying age structure. The conservation objectives of this restoration work included: the removal of scrub & trees, heather cutting and spreading to increase the age structure and size of heather patches, and bare ground creation. Over the next few years, SFT aim to restore more heathland sites, whilst maintaining the sites targeted already.
