Woodland Work

Tuesday, October 23rd 2012

The list of winter jobs on the reserve is always a long one and this year is no exception. Up at the top of the woodland is an area of Sycamore trees that have become diseased and need to be removed. The sweet sap of these trees is irresistible to squirrels who have damaged the trees in their search for a sugar rush!

Chainsaw

Around twenty trees were felled by chainsaw and then tidied away by volunteers. A large habitat pile of logs now lies by the pathside.

Sycamore work

By the end of the day, this section of the woodland trail was looking very different. Over the winter months it is hoped that more trees will be planted here to fill in the gaps.

Thank you to everyone for your hard work today.
