Volunteer Opportunity – Hazel coppicing

Volunteer Opportunity – Hazel coppicing

Can you spare a few hours lending a hand to implement the Jonesborough Forest Management Plan? The forest has been the site of on-going improvement works for the last few years and needs regular hazel coppicing as well as cutting back invasive gorse and cherry laurel. The hazel will be used in an upcoming round house building project.

It’s a fantastic opportunity to help look after a diverse forest, get some exercise and make new friends. You’ll be using hand tools and full training will be given, do as much or as little as you feel able.

You need to bring  weather appropriate clothing, sturdy footwear (hiking boots are ideal) and a packed lunch.

Registration is essential. Please specify which of the work days you’ll be attending:

  • 12th January 2019 and/or
  • 23rd February
