Coppicing

Thursday, January 29th 2015

Volunteers once again found themselves in the coppice block and for part of the morning were working in blizzard conditions!

Before long the sun came out and we were able to get the fire going.

The last few patches of Blackthorn, Hawthorn and Willow were cleared and the brash burnt. We can finally say we have finished this section of the coppice block, and for the next couple of weeks will be able to concentrate on some other areas of the reserve.

We have spent most Tuesdays and Thursdays here in the past three months; a mammoth amount of work has been completed to a very high standard by all who have been involved. Here is a picture from one of the first days we were working here.

This photo, taken from the same point, shows how much the views in the scrapes have been changed.

Thank you to everyone who has worked so hard on this project, it will be exciting to see what species can be found here as the weather warms up in the spring.
