Forwarding and processing

We have recently finished thinning various areas of Wenlock Edge so Nathan our contractor has brought in his mini-forwarder to clear lengths out of the wood. This 8 wheeled machine quickly negotiates the steep slopes and easily grabs lengths of wood weighing up to 1 tonne.

We also borrowed the firewood processor from Attingham Park to cut and split logs to keep Benthall hall warm over christmas. Here is a photograph of our placement student Katy using the processor to fill up the trailer.
