Sherwood Forest Woes

Filed under: Historic Preservation — John Maass @ 9:59 am

From Yahoo News:

Robin Hood might have a hard time hiding out in the Sherwood Forest of today.  The forest once covered about 100,000 acres, a big chunk of present-day Nottinghamshire County. Today its core is about 450 acres, with patches spread out through the rest of the county.

Experts say urgent action is needed to regenerate the forest and save the rare and endangered ancient oaks at its heart.

Some 15 organizations have joined forces to draw up a rescue plan, hoping to win a $100 million grant through a TV competition in December.
