Tidying Up Continues

Tuesday, March 23rd 2021

As much of the diseased Ash as possible has been left standing to provide a valuable habitat for invertebrates and birds (such as Woodpeckers). However, there has still been a huge amount of brash and logs to clear away.

The newly trained 'woodchippers' put their new skills to the test and turned branches into woodchips.

At the top of the woodland (inaccessible to the woodchipper) the only way to remove the branches was by having a small brash bonfire.

At the outdoor classroom, wood was sorted into logs for habitat piles and brash for the woodchipper.

It was a very productive day thanks to the regular Foxglove team. There is light at the end of the tunnel!

Our sincere thanks to everyone who has helped out (no need to go to the gym this week)!
