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

22nd November 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

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.
