Me and Al had eleven extra pairs of helpful hands cutting down the small trees and clearing brash on the upper slope in Longville (near Wilderhope) coppice today. This extra help was provided by the SSNTV (Shropshire and Staffordshire National Trust Volunteers) and was very much appreciated. We got a vast area cleared of scrub and small trees and a large amount of brash burnt. We are doing this so that we can access and remove the larger trees easier during thinning works.
The SSNTV do lots of work at various National Trust properties including Dudmaston and Attingham Park and always impress us with the effort they put in and the good job they do. So thank you to everyone who came along today!
