Working for the HCS Central Sites team. Task leader Geoff.
This is genuine ancient woodland that has been under management since the Romans cut a main road through the wood. We’re to coppice all but the mature trees in a coupe just North of the carpark as part of an 8-year rotation. We should make bundles of all viable Hazel stakes and binders. Other brash to be burned on site. Chainsaws, hedge trimmers, bowsaws and loppers will be the tools of choice. Hard hats and eye protection advised.
Here Sarum Road running east to west is a tarmac covering on top of the original Roman road.
Week 1 went well with a good clearance and 2 bonfires.
Week 2. Mike to bring fruity flapjack. Thank you Mrs G.
