Root/soil damage and sterilisation, allowing pathogens in - check up 
'tea-break disease' in forestry publications.  I'd have it conditioned that 
slabs should be laid and fires only on slabs

Subject: Camp fires in woodland

I am dealing with a planning application for limited camping in a mature wood 
of 13 hectares. 

Part of use will be small fires under or close to tree canopies by campers 
for cooking and warmth at night (not bonfires)

 

Has anyone any experience on restrictions imposed on such fires by planners? 

On the face of it harmless but smoke could affect birds and bats.

 

Regards

 

Phillip Ellis
