Woodland Discovery Centre, Abbey Lane 9.30am – 4.00pm
This one day course will teach you how to fell small trees by hand and how to process them ready for use as firewood, craft material and or brash. Trees need to be felled to keep the woodland in a healthy state and to allow other trees to grow to their full capacity. It also allows light onto the woodland floor, creating an environment for other flora and fauna to thrive. You will be using traditional woodland tools such as a bowsaw, axe, felling lever and rope to fell the trees along with a billhook, pruning saw and loppers to process the wood.
