Posted May 24, 2020 04:13:25 Wood fence post will be removed east of the New England coast for an “unsustainable” growth.
The Department of Conservation and Recreation said the project will allow for more sustainable use of the site and will help protect wildlife and habitats.
The site in the town of Ashton is a wooded area.
It has about 10 hectares of woodland.
The plan to clear the area involves removing fence posts and other trees.
“As long as the fence posts are in good condition, they should last for the life of the tree,” said Dr Andrew Brown from the Department of Environmental Conservation.
They can be removed as soon as they are planted and are removed before the trees grow.
This will ensure the forest and wildlife habitat is maintained and protected, said Dr Brown.
More to come.
