Apr 03 Into the woods with Countryfile By Judith

It was great to see a whole episode of BBC Countryfile devoted to woodlands and timber. The programme noted the the many benefits of woodland and concentrated on industrial aspects of the timber industry, highlighting the woeful shortfall in current tree planting and the likely implications for the future. The loggingindustrial aspects were in sharp contrast to John Craven’s piece on horse-logging, however. He visited Frankie Woodgate in Kent and watched her work in the woods with her beautiful horses, extracting coppiced trees with minimal impact. SWOG got there first of course – one SWOG member recounted her training course with Frankie’s team at Weald Woodscapes and it can be read here.
