Native trees are to be restored to a Leicestershire wood as part of a conservation project.
Sycamore trees will be felled to let native species regenerate
From 6 August, Leicestershire County Council will start work at Sheet Hedges Wood, Newton Lindford.
The aim is to fell non-native sycamore trees which are preventing the natural regeneration of native trees such as oaks, ash and maples.
While the felling work takes place, some of the wood will be cordoned off for walkers' safety.
The work has been approved by the government nature conservation group Natural England, the Forestry Commission and local parish councils.
