Chopping and Lopping

Tuesday, October 20th 2015

The volunteers were out in force again today starting the woodland work that will continue throughout the autumn and winter.

We selectively coppiced the area next to the boardwalk on the way to the lake hide as it had become dense and overgrown with little light penetrating to the canopy floor.

Everyone got stuck into the task of chopping down the trees, cutting them up and dragging them to the fire.

The area has now been opened up allowing sunlight to get to the canopy floor and to the boardwalk. The volunteers got through an amazing amount of work today and have really transformed the area; we would like to thank you all for your hard work.
