Having called in the advise and help of Greg Humphries on coppicing in our wood, we start preparing for the first of 6-8 areas that are to be put down to 4 varieties of biomass willow. We also come up with a design to begin creating more shelter belts within our 2 acre field that we have been planting up round the edges. This is what it looks like so far;
We also started to use our crushed breeze blocks for paths to access the wood for cutting and pulling out – the only way to manage the woodland without sinking up to the knee and getting bogged down. This revolutionised our experience of the woods from, oh no, do we really have to work in the woods towow, its an amazing space!
