Herne Farm Estate – Environment Statement

“Our aim is to manage the estate with a light touch, balancing the needs of nature with the needs of residents. We trim hedges and lawns so as to protect access to homes and open spaces. We manage trees and bushes so as to maintain their health and remove possible hazards, and do our best to let the natural environment manage itself. We ensure that we and any contractors we hire comply with environmental regulations, and we take a long-term ecological perspective in managing land controlled by the estate.”
