Coppicing Willow along the North Pond Chain.
Wilden Marshers have been out all day coppicing willow at the shallow end of the North Pond Chain. Our day started overcast, but it turned into a really beautiful day at around 11 am.
All the willow on the left hand side of the ponds is to be cropped; It will take a while, the water is low enough, and now is the time to do it.
You know its been good day when the willow has been cut exactly to plan, and the tremendous amounts of brash generated can’t be seen. This is the way today has turned out, with happy Marshers finishing on-time.
