Come along and join John Shaw this Saturday and help him. He will be doing Woodland Management – cutting and thinning, The woodlands need sunlight in order to thrive. Woodland wildlife in Britain has evolved in response to long term cycles of cutting and regrowth. So your task will often be about letting the light in. We do this by thinning out trees ad shrubs. The Sunlight can then penetrate the canopy and germinates the wildflower seed in the soil, these plants provide nectar and pollen for the bees and butterflies. These in turn are food for birds, bats and so on.
The branches and trees we cut down will be used to make dead hedge – perfect habitat for hedgehogs, fungi and beetles. The trees we leave behind then have space to grow on to become quality, mature specimens in a time frame beyond our lifespan.
Meeting point : 10am @ Keep Hill Wood Bridleway entrance off Warren Wood Drive, High Wycombe HP11 1DY
All tools, gloves, tea, coffee & biscuits will be supplied.
