Coppicing Continues

Wednesday, November 18th 2020

After ten years of growth, the Willow in the coppice block to be cut this year, is surprisingly tall. It is a mammoth task but a rewarding one as you can definitely see where you have been! 

As with all of our woodland work, any wood that can be used elsewhere is kept to one side. Willow Carr by definition is a waterlogged woodland therefore wellies are essential!

Once cleared, the area seems bare and rather sad however, by early next year it will quickly spring back into life.

Wet Willow is not a favourite for making a bonfire, but Brian loves a challenge!

Are the potatoes ready yet?!
