Further work on the scrub belt

2nd January

There were a dozen of us today working on several tasks: a quick litter-pick, coppicing one of the hazel trees in the copse, cutting it up and reinforcing the dead hedges, brushcutting the grass against the scrub belt so that the path can be moved up a little, and continuing on from last month cutting more sections of bramble and scrub. I hope passersby don't think we are destroying all the brambles as it looks like severe treatment during the winter, but it should enable regeneration and plenty of strong growth and juicy blackberries in the next season or so.
