Tidenham Chase Park

Grid Ref ST558992

We were continuing the clearing of the birch at Tidenham Chase and enlarging the heathland landscape. Three large fires were needed to burn off the cuttings. Some of the birch were quite large as the area we were in had not been touched for years. The ground was quite soggy after the recent rainy days as it has rained every day so far in October.

We are making quite a lot of progress through the birch stands and we take out leggy gorse as well.


The open area of heathland can be seen on the right and the bracket fungus tree was left standing.

Our ranger is still fully kitted out as he spent the day chain sawing the larger trees.
