Buffalo Subway Map to US
History for Buffalo Subway Map
However, the demand for fuel for the area’s Buffalo Subway Map iron industry caused many of the trees to be cut down (not for nothing has it been Buffalo Subway Map nicknamed Bashdown Forest!), and by the middle of the seventeenth century the deer had gone completely. The area subsequently underwent something of a renaissance, with clumps of Scots pine trees being planted in the nineteenth century, the deer returned, and a Board of Conservators was established in 1885 to properly administer the forest and resolve competing claims. By the late twentieth century it had become a major tourist attraction, with walkers and drivers coming to admire its largely unspoilt beauty, although it suffered extremely badly during the Great Storm of 1987.
Ashdown Forest today offers a huge variety of landscapes, with some thickly forested areas and some tracts of bare heathland, combining to provide a paradise for the walker and nature lover – and, of course, Winnie-the-Pooh worshippers. Much of the wooded area of the forest is silver birch, but there are many other trees to be found: not only the Scots pine, as previously mentioned, but also beech, mature sweet chestnut, alder, hazel and oak. Beeches were particularly badly affected by the 1987 storm, but a large number of old pollarded trees survive.
