Caring For The Forest

We want you to explore and share the fascinating treasures safely locked away in the Forest; once discovered you fall under its spell. Our care and appreciation are shown in the steps that we take - in the New Forest the animals and the countryside come first. All of us can play our part in preserving the wonderful forest for future generations, by observing the following simple code of behaviour.

Roads

Driving at 40mph or below on all unfenced Forest roads greatly reduces the number of accidents involving ponies, cattle and deer especially at night.

Parking

Parking on the roadside causes road congestion and great damage to verges. Please use one of the free Forest car parks.

Cycling

Always keep to the gravelled tracks in woodlands and the open forest. Give way to walkers and horse riders, travel at moderate speeds and avoid skidding.

Ponies

Forest ponies are wild animals, not pets, and should not be fed by visitors. This encourages them to stray onto dangerous forest roads. Ponies and donkeys can also be very aggressive if approached and young children are particularly at risk.

Dogs

Dogs can be a serious problem in the forest. Pets should be on a lead and under control at all times.

Access

You may walk on any footpath or track unless it says otherwise - by keeping to paths you greatly reduce the risk of disturbance to wildlife and their habitats.

Fire

Fire is a great threat to forest habitats and wildlife. Regretfully no picnic or camp fires are allowed.

Car Park Thieves

Remember to lock your car and take valuables with you - thieves operate from forest car parks.

Litter

Litter should always be placed in litter bins or taken home.
