Nearly There!

Tuesday, January 27th 2015

Work continued today in the coppice block; Hawthorn trees were thinned out to create a more open canopy and to provide the remaining trees more light and space to grow. We had felled several of these yesterday so a clear up mission was launched first thing.

The last few pockets of willow along path edges were also coppiced today; opening up and completely changing the feel of the area. Willow was processed to be used as withies for our Willow Spiling project on Risedale Beck next month – this will reinforce a section of the bank that is prone to erosion.

Everyone will be glad to hear this section of coppicing is nearly complete; we expect just one more day of work here to finish of the last little bits, before having a break from coppicing for a couple of weeks.

As always, thank you to everyone who has helped out on the reserve today.
