It was a complete contrast to last week. The weather was crispy cold and very bright. The sun shone through the now bare branches at a low angle giving everything a yellow tinge. The volunteer group walked over to the area we marked out to start coppicing. It was the turn of Triangle and Plantation to be harvested which consisted mainly of hazel. It did draw attention to our blunt tools, a list of replacement blades will have to be drawn up soon and purchased. We all celebrated the fact that we were not building pathways for a change and the fellowship at our break time was buoyant. Perhaps because we are also looking forward to our woodland celebration too!
