A new survey revealing where ancient woodland in Rother is located has been launched.
The Ancient Woodland Inventory gives a more accurate picture of the extent and distribution of this important habitat which will allow the woodland to be more effectively managed and protected. For the first time the survey includes woodlands that are less than two hectares in size.
Cllr Tony Ganly Rother District Council's portfolio holder for the environment said: "The production of the Ancient Woodland Inventory is important in helping to protect this valuable resource and to increase the understanding of ancient woodland in Rother."
The survey has been carried out by the High Weald Joint Advisory Committee's Weald and Downs Ancient Woodland Project.
