For Herongate Wood to develop as a natural and green Woodland we feel duty bound to be prescriptive regarding the type of planting that is permitted.
To assist with our preferred planting, we employ a regular review of the cemetery and as a result will remove items that we feel are not in keeping with a woodland environment or are a risk to the wildlife.
Apart from trees planted by HGW
roses, shrubs, conifers, all potted plants and other small trees are not permitted and are routinely removed (along with any borders, stones pebbles, shingle and membrane sheets).
To provide some guidance regarding appropriate planting. We have worked together with a local nursery to provide families with a list of a few plants that are suitable.
Our preferred plant list is detailed below
