Yesterday the volunteers, accompanied by Stuart, Jenny and myself, went to Kennels Lane Meadow for a day of felling and chipping in the sunshine.
There was pleanty of felling to be done and the chance to take on some trickier trees for Jenny with her chainsaw and Duncan and Melvin with some rope. Mike was as ever on form flying through anything we directed him to. The chipping group had their work cut out for them in the morning with brash from a previous task but caught up in no time and were on the heels of our felling group.
The task was part of an ongoing project to remove encroaching trees and scrub from the meadow.The results show all the hard work that has gone into this site over the past years. Thank you again to everyone and I apologise again for forgetting the spare gas canister I won’t do it again and hope you can forgive me!
