Once again we were joined by the fantastic team at Investec for two days last week to help with various woodland management jobs at both Hazels Wood and our Arboretum at Val de la Mare.
The first day, at Hazels Wood (near the old shell garden), was spent removing all the old tree shelters from the maturing trees which were planted approx 15 years ago, after which the team then re-painted the entrance fencing as well as removing Ivy from quite a long stretch of wall.
On day two, despite the inclement weather, the team set about clearing, cutting and stacking previously fallen trees, creating natural wildlife habitats as they went. By the afternoon they were quite wet through due to the persistent rain! As they felt they hadn’t been as productive as they’d like, the team kindly offered to return for a half day sometime in the near future!
Many thanks to everyone who helped us make a difference, please come back soon!
