The New Forest

Every year millions of people visit the New Forest, drawn by the magic of its landscape, a special combination of ancient and ornamental woodland, timber inclosures and heathland. The New Forest landscape is unique. That is why it is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and a National Park.

However, the landscape is not natural. It has been shaped by centuries of human intervention. It is the complex nature of that intervention today that conserves all the valued aspects of the New Forest.

This delicate landscape, flora and fauna need careful and ongoing support one of the ways that you can help is to support The New Forest Trust in its aims and objectives to preserve, conserve and educate all about this wonderful place.
