It took me and Paul ages to bring one tree down. I don’t think the saws are getting blunt, it was just a hard thick trunk that we were having to cut through.
However, we got a bit more cleared and we really need to push on with clearing the ballast ridge because the path is waterlogged and ankle-deep mud.
It was a damp old workday and pretty grim. We stacked up all of the brash in an untidy pile, but it will create shelter for a great many small mammals, and as it rots down it will be great for fungi.
Next workday is Tuesday 30th October. Same place starting at 11am.
Good to get back out there today.
