Our new map shows 97 ancient woods threatened with loss or damage by HS2 - including 14 ancient woods that were previously unmapped. Our research uncovered these areas and they are now recognised by Natural England as irreplaceable ancient woodland.

The maps also highlights 3 ancient woods that could be saved following advice from the HS2 Select Committee for a tunnel extension. HS2 Ltd must now gather the necessary information to help confirm this tunnel extension without further delay.
