Path edging

Sunday, April 2nd 2023

Earlier this year, windblown trees in the woodland were skillfully cut into planks by tree surgeons from Yorkshire Tree Specialists.

A massive effort by a group from the Personnel Recovery Centre moved the planks all the way to the workshop. Definitely a 'Green Gym' day! The planks were then cut in half and transported by staff and volunteers to the Outdoor Classroom where over 100 diseased Ash trees were felled and extracted earlier in the winter. 

The extraction of the Ash timber damaged the path to the Wildflower Meadow and the whole area is very muddy. The newly cut planks are now being used to re-edge the damaged path.

Thank you to everyone who has helped so far!
