Woodland work

Today was a brilliant day at work! I have been spending quite a lot of time in the office lately and while this ok and a necessity of the job it isn't as good as being outdoors, especially on a crisp Autumn day, felling trees and carrying out conservation work.

I was working with two volunteers on the edge of a block of woodland that is soon to be thinned (removing the weaker trees to give the better ones more room and allowing natural regeneration to take place). Out task was to take out the trees that would fall onto the track and burn up the brash, this means that once the thinning work begins properly no time will be lost clearing the path of brash. (i hope that makes sense).

We made quite a difference!

Lovely Autumn colours and a puff of smoke from our work site.

Late afternoon sun catches some Larch on Wenlock Edge.
