Wonderful Woodland

Tuesday, November 19th 2013

A neglected area of Corsican pine received some much needed TLC today from more than twenty volunteers. The trees have all now been brashed to head height to allow more light through the woodland. By lunchtime the cutting was almost complete and the difference was plain to see. It is hoped that increased air flow around these young pines will help to prevent needle blight.

Brashing

Out in a clearing the brash was put onto a fire. Thank you to everyone for working so hard on this project today and to the pupils from the Dales School who joined in with the volunteers too.
