The New Forest National Park Authority’s Senior Tree Officer, Bryan Wilson will be giving a guided tour around Roydon Wood, Hampshire Wildlife Trust’s nature reserve on Saturday 12 May, from 10:30am-12:30pm and would like you to join him.

‘Trees please’ is a free event starting at the Filly Inn car park. The gentle three mile stroll around Roydon Wood will be accompanied by commentary from Bryan about native English trees such as; oak, ash, hazel, birch and Scots pine.

This ancient woodland is rich in wildlife and is the perfect opportunity to spot the speckled wood butterfly, brimstone butterfly and the large white.

Bryan Wilson, Senior Tree Officer, said: ‘This informal but informative walk will look at how trees live, grow and interact with their environment in this beautiful part of the New Forest and will hopefully whet your appetite for more woodland exploration as well as being an opportunity for people with similar local interests to meet.’
