BLUEBELLS AT DOCKEY WOOD

I made the decision to travel 100 miles this year, after the Angmering Park Estate ruined their bluebell wood by dumping tonnes of waste wood instead of turning it into wood chips. Brushwood is often left to rot in situ following logging work, but it looks awful and the practice is usually related to saving money on shredding. If the estate had spent a little more money, beauty and biodiversity would be the clear winners. Unfortunately, forestry is a business and the graph on the wall tells the story of it all. Bluebells woods don't make money. A decade-long wait is on the cards before the wood rots down. Dockey Wood, in Buckinghamshire is a popular location for visitors and photographers. Situated in a wealthy area, full of golf courses, mansions and Conservative Party banners, the woodland is a 90 minute walk from Tring railway station. If you have aspirations about buying a property here, keep in mind that tree houses and manholes are not included in any bank's lending
