East London and West Essex Guardian Series: A new 30-acre woodland is to be planted to extend Epping Forest A new 30-acre woodland is to be planted to extend Epping Forest

A new area of woodland is to be created to extend Epping Forest.

The 30 acres plot will be named Gifford Wood after the Late Lord Mayor of London, Roger Gifford will be in Upshire.

The City of London Corporation, which runs Epping Forest, is looking for volunteers to help plant the area on Saturday.

Hawthorn, hazel and spindle shrubbery will be grown alongside the 2,000 new trees which children from Upshire School made a start to planting last week.

The saplings are mixture of 11 species more tolerant of projected changes in climate including birch, alder and rowan.

Those wanting to take part can meet at Upshire Village Hall, Horseshoe Hill between 11am and 1pm.

Staff from the City Corporation’s Epping Forest Team will be on hand as will members of the Friends of Epping Forest.

Volunteers will also be able to enjoy a new trail through the area and adjacent portion of the forest.

For more information call 020 8532 1010, email  epping.forest@cityoflondon.gov.uk or visit www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/giffordwoodappeal

He must have been a very impotent person to get a whole wood named after him, shame the story is not elaborated to enlighten everyone.

At least Liquid Ali will be pleased to know that he could possibly have Epping Forest have a name change and become Liquid Forest in recognition to all his achievements especially to the fines Department at the Council Office.

"Impotent"? Talking about yourself again, cornbeefur - or should I say yourselves?

On the topic of the report, it is good to hear that a new area of sustainable forest is being created in a country where we are losing trees every year from disease, climate change and encroachment.
