Working in the woods

Working in the woods

We have been working with some of the south Park Management volunteers and Rusland Horizon apprentices to do some woodland management work on one of our properties in the Rusland Valley at Glass Knott. They have been involved with coppicing a coupe with hazel trees in. They have felled and processed the trees, and stacked the brash in neat piles called windrows. The thicker timber has been sold to the Bobbin Mill at Finsthwaite for them to make into bobbins.
