Deer and deer fences

Roe Deer remain frequent visitors to Lag Wood and continue to be a threat to recently cut coppices in the first two or three years of regrowth. They also seem to have a partiality to naturally regenerating Ash which we are keen to protect in the hope that some of this natural regeneration may be resistant to Ash Dieback. Keeping Roe out of the wood completely would be difficult and unlikely to be fully successful. But we will keep up our use of temporary deer fence which seems to have been very effective in protecting recently coppiced coupes.
