Valley Park - Logging the Old Fashion Way
Valley Park - Logging the Old Fashion Way
Over the years the trees in Zionshill copse have formed a dense canopy which is blocking out the light, this is not allowing any new growth on the woodland floor and if left to its own devices will eventually lead to the death of the copse.
The local council has decided to thin out some of the trees to permit new growth, after cutting the trees the large sections of wood must be removed and to prevent damage to the woodland floor by tractors, which is the normal method of wood removal, horses are being used. Here Titan, a Suffolk Punch is working with a sled called a forwarder.
