Volunteering with the National Trust in Newton Wood.
Two years on the dry hedges built to allow the regrowth of the woodland floor seemed to have done their job, but were looking tied.
So the task today was to rejuvenate the hedges, and extend then to discourage visitors from using the erosion gulley.
Dry (or dead) hedges are fences built with fallen branches and by weaving in cut sycamore saplings. Sycamore is an invasive species in an oak woodland and is actively removed.
