18.02.11 Cardiff Friday Mornings Project: Pentwyn Woodland Access Work

Today, 6 volunteers turned out at last minute notice to continue the path widening exercise which we had started on 2-previous occassions. Today we focused just on the path widening which involved coppicing and bramble bashing to make sure we didn't affect the impending bird nesting season.

This time we used loppers, shears, secateurs and saws to widen the path to allow Land Rover access for the tree team. We were a little saddened to see some fresh fly tipping in the woods (including a Christmas tree), but not on the scale we witnessed on our first trip here. It was nice to see the signs of spring with the floor much greener than on previous trips and some of the buds were showing signs of green. Now the widening and associated tree work has finished on this side, we will be able to continue on the litter removal side in the coming months.
