Whatever else has happened in 2016, one remarkable fact is that we have enjoyed decent weather for every single work party. Long may this continue!

Our work today was a continuation of the tasks from November. We installed more of the posts to fill in further gaps in the western boundary with dead hedging. In addition to dead material lying around, we coppiced a multi-stemmed elm stool and felled and stump-treated a sycamore, thereby providing plenty of poles and brash for the dead hedge. We also have four substantial poles saved for future path edging. The remaining whips, denoted by the Woodland Trust, were planted in front of one section of the hedge. This completes our dead-hedging along the western perimeter from the northern end to about half way down.
