Volunteer Task : Dering Wood ( 1/5) – coppicing

November 22 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Dering Wood, Smarden Bell Road, Smarden
Ashford, Kent TN27 United Kingdom
+ Google Map

The  coppicing – this week in dormouse woodland, - is to open up woodland rides more. Rides make for long narrow glades , which open up the woodland to light. Hence this will increase the opportunity for more sunlight and warmth to reach the woodland fringe and in turn encourage more plant diversity within the woodland. Ride edges provide major habitats for flowering plants and animals especially butterflies.

A few years have passed since we were last here. Curtis Wood is a small area of native woodland, just outside Herne. Then, we installed 2 interpretive panels ( showing maps indicating walking routes within the wood) and some way-marker posts. These footpaths through this city council owned site need some maintenance. So we’ll be repairing way-marker posts and clearing vegetation on these well used routes.

Our annual visits to this small, young wood started back in 2008. Past visits clearing the scrub and tree thinning have improved this small woodland enormously. The trees are noticeably healthier and with increased plant diversity. The owner has on most occasions had a charcoal burner functioning to add to the interest of being at this delightful spot.

This beautiful location , in the Kent Downs has always been a favourite! We’ll be clearing back patches of scrub, which if uncontrolled, would encroach onto the grassland. The grassland – a vital feature of this site, -supports a number of wildflowers including horseshoe vetch, cowslips, wild thyme, marjoram and rock rose, as well as a number of orchids, notably bee orchid, pyramidal orchid. Whilst this is not the time of year to see these species, come along and help,…
