Dartmoor woodland restoration work begins

2 August 2013 Last updated at 07:39 BST

A £5m project to restore more than 800 acres of damaged woodland on the edge of Dartmoor to its native state has begun.

The joint Woodland Trust and National Trust project will see much of Fingle Woods, replanted during the 1930s with fast-growing imported conifers, gradually replaced with native species like oak trees.

Simon Clemison reports.
