RFS visit to Cradley woodlands

I had a great day yesterday with the RFS. (royal Forestry Society) visiting the woodlands of the Duchy of Cornwall’s Cradley estate.¬† It is so impressive to see woodlands¬† that are being managed with a vision for the long term with all the benefits to wildlife that brings.

So many people look at woodlands in terms of their own lifetime, not realising that for instance an Oak tree should be harvested when it is 120 years old to get the best value from it but at the same time creating fantastic habitat for wildlife.

My first BLOG


This is my first ever Blog. I have started the BLOG to let people know about my work in the woods and the projects I undertake. I will also publish details about my training courses and other opportunities to spend time in the English woodlands with me.
