Waste Not Want Not

Thursday, January 5th 2012

Using the hazel coppiced yesterday, edging has been placed to resurface part of the woodland walk path, in preparation for the chipping to be laid down on the January Worky Day.

We try to use as much of the 'waste' material as possible on site.  From the coppicing yesterday, the largest sections are used as edging, smaller branches are cut and used as pegs to hold these in place, then the rest of the material will be chipped for use as infill.

Robin, the forester, has been in to help us deal with some of the windblown fir trees that fell in the high winds over the last few days.  The root plates are now safely down, though there is still some work to done here repairing the path and clearing the brash.
