Wood Conservation Session

December 6, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

PhD SSN Woods Conservation Session: Coppicing and Dead-Hedging
Join us for hands-on conservation efforts at Burleigh Wood on December 6th, 2023. Immerse yourself in the serene beauty of nature as we come together to engage in coppicing and dead-hedging activities, contributing to the preservation and enhancement of our local woodland.
Coppicing- Learn and participate in the ancient woodland management technique of coppicing, where certain trees are cut down to ground level to stimulate new growth. This sustainable practice helps maintain a healthy and diverse woodland ecosystem.
Dead-Hedging- Contribute to the creation of dead hedges, a natural barrier made from cut branches and logs. Dead hedges provide essential habitat and protection for wildlife while acting as a sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to traditional fencing.
What to Expect:
Roll up your sleeves and actively contribute to the well-being of our local environment and don’t forget to dress warmly.
All necessary tools (including gloves) for coppicing and dead-hedging activities will be provided.
To ensure a smooth and organized event, we kindly request that you register your interest (scan the QR code in the post, last registration is on 3rd December, 5pm). This will help us estimate the number of volunteers and provide adequate resources for the activities.
Come join us for a day of meaningful conservation work, connecting with nature, and fostering a sense of community among PhD researchers.
Let’s make a positive impact together! 🌲🌎
