Potters Chase Wood – Home Counties

This is a joint meeting with the London & Middlesex Division. We will visit a new 68-hectare woodland creation project, a mixed landscape of pasture fields, broadleaf woodland, hedgerows and shelter belts, owned by Hertfordshire County Council and managed by their Rural Estates Department. Over the next few years 23 hectares of new woodland will be planted on the previously grazed pastures, funded through the Forestry Commission’s Woodland Carbon Fund.

Potters Bar, Hertfordshire

Pre-visit information

In the light of COVID 19, we urge all members to read our COVID 19 guideline notes before attending woodland meetings.  In addition, as an educational charity, the RFS must lead by example on the biosecurity measures recommended by the Forestry Commission (FC) and Defra to minimise the risk of spreading soil-borne tree infections. You can make a difference to stopping the spread of tree diseases. Clean boots are a first step!  For further information, please click here
