The importance of wearing PPE, the saw literally just nicked the chainsaw trousers but it shows how they work, all limbs intact and fully operational.
Three more Sweet Chestnut down in the broadleaf area to allow more light in, that's it for felling this...

This website and blog is about Steve and Tamara's ongoing project in South Devon hoping that over time the benefits of their management will be clearly evident in providing continued habitat for some of our most vulnerable species.
