Winter work started

Winter work commenced with the first task of felling two more ash trees ready for next winter’s fuel for the woodburning stove.  This has been done, but they were fairly small so am trying to estimate if there will be enough wood.

Have started coppicing of hazel.  These stools were last done about 10 years ago so are well grown and have produced lots a straight rods – now what to do with them?  We will need to protect the coppice stools otherwise the rabbits and deer will browse them to death.  Very time consuming.

Photos later …
