This old tree was eventually felled although it did, initially, fall at an angle against the pines and a winch attached to the FC van was used to pull it over.
An old willow is removed to allow more light on the neighbouring habitat.

The track along the forest and bank being cleared of bramble.



Brierley Banks

Grid Ref SO630159

Brierley Banks are the woods between Brierley and Ruardean Woodside. A large proportion of these woods consist of sweet chestnut, conifers and old oak. The area beside the track was to be cleared of small pine, birch, gorse and bramble to make glades to encourage butterflies. Thes woods are heaving with wild boar and deer as many signs of them can be found.





Large alder!
