Volunteer Opportunity – Continued restoration of Glassdrummond Wood

Clearing felled wood either via chipping or tidying into log piles for later projects.
Please note this opportunity is not suitable for children under 14.

Glassdrummond Wood has come on in leaps and bounds since work first started restoring the site into a user-friendly wood. Educational zones, an adventure path and improved biodiversity areas have all been developed. To further improve the biodiversity of the area a tree surgeon was brought in to fell a lot of the coniferous larch trees from the heart of the forest, to let more light reach the forest floor and allow deciduous trees to grow.

We need your help to tidy up what was left behind by the tree surgeon, which involves bringing lighter tree limbs or brash to the chipper for chipping, and creating log piles out of the larger pieces of wood for other projects.

Any help with the restoration will be greatly appreciated.  All tools and safety equipment will be provided, all you need to bring with you is weather appropriate clothing and sturdy footwear or wellies and a packed lunch.

Please note: There will be workers on site from 8.30am to last light, so if you’d like to come and lend an hour or two you’ll be most welcome. Unfortunately this opportunity is not suitable for children under 14.

Registration essential.
