General Maintenance Day

Today in Coed y Werin we undertook some tidying and a bit of general maintenance within the woods, checking for fallen trees and obstacles and looking to where we will need to widen the rides, also known as tracks, come September.

Our management plan tells us we need to create more light in the woodland to create some really good open habitat and we don’t need to remove trees to do this, instead widening the rides creates excellent wildlife habitat.

Today we used coppiced wood, we had stored from earlier in the year, to fix a hedge around the long pond. Although a very hot day, and quite physical work, it was carried out under the dappled shade of the tree canopy.
