hmmm - definitions supplied by those with an inherant interest in the same.

Yup. So by the Woodland Trust's own definition, Calvert Junction Jubilee is not ancient. You could call it 'pretty' or 'biodiverse' or 'in the way', but you can't call it 'ancient'.


Given the speed at which HS2 is progressing, it's likely that every tree/sapling in the country will be ancient woodland by the time it reaches Birmingham! (Hopefully a few will turn out to be magic money trees to help pay for it!)  Smiley

You can find out more about how this forum works [here] - that will link you to a copy of the forum agreement that you can read before you join, and tell you very much more about how we operate. We are an independent forum, provided and run by customers of Great Western Railway, for customers of Great Western Railway and we welcome railway professionals as members too, in either a personal or official capacity. Views expressed in posts are not necessarily the views of the operators of the forum.

As well as posting messages onto existing threads, and starting new subjects, members can communicate with each other through personal messages if they wish. And once members have made a certain number of posts, they will automatically be admitted to the "frequent posters club", where subjects not-for-public-domain are discussed; anything from the occasional rant to meetups we may be having ...
