Traditional Woodland Management Skills Course

Woodlands and hedgerows are taken for granted as part of scenery, but to a large extent, the framework to our landscape provided by trees is  the product of hundreds of years of traditional woodland management carried out by skilled woodsmen. Sadly though, these skills are being lost and with them our managed woods, coppices and hedgerows. To slow the loss of these traditional countryside management skills in the Ring of Gullion, a course was developed which covered all aspects of woodland and hedgerow creation and management. The course gave an insight into the various management skills and techniques.
