How to Work a Mobile Sawmill

by WoodlandsTV ~ 26 July, 2016 ~ comments welcome

Here we have Iain and Adrian talking us through the various stages of the mobile milling process. We see the team safely setting up and using their equipment to mill selected timbers. We also hear about the range of benefits of using this small-scale system, including that it enables the focus to be on individual trees as opposed to blanket clearance and so promotes a mixed age woodland, allowing for natural regeneration of trees.

Tractors and Trees

by WoodlandsTV ~ 30 June, 2016 ~ 5 comments

Here we see Stuart Brooking, Devon area manager for http://www.woodlands.co.uk, working with Jim and Simon to manage some windblown spruce trees that are blocking a woodland track. This work is carried out for safety reasons, to renew access through the woodland and to allow use of the timber as firewood before the trees start to rot. We learn about the various stages involved in the extraction process, the different equipment used and the safety precautions necessary when working with the 27hp tractor and 3.5 tonne winch – which can get in between the trees. The larger tractor then takes over to pull the logs to a central point, ready to clear from the woodland. http://www.haldontreeservices.co.uk/ An Adliberate film http://www.adliberate.co.uk for WoodlandsTV http://www.woodlands.co.uk/tv

Andrew Mead, forestry expert/instructor/assessor, shows us how to make safe a windblown tree using a chainsaw and hand winch. This is a potentially hazardous scenario and Andy talks us through the various cuts needed to ensure the tree moves in a controlled way – to avoid danger and to release the tree without damage to its fibres. http://www.lynhertraining.com/

Tony Titchen`s Tortworth Tree Talk

by WoodlandsTV ~ 2 March, 2016 ~ 5 comments

Here Tony Titchen, experienced dendrologist, takes us `tree gazing` at Tortworth Arboretum – pointing out both native species (such as the Hornbeam) and non-natives (such as the Hickory from Eastern North America). This historically and culturally rich arboretum is currently being restored for community use – it was first designed and planted in the 19th century and enjoys over 300 rare and champion trees. With his abundant knowledge and passion for his subject, Tony is an expert guide as we walk with him through this woodland wonderland. http://tortwortharboretum.org An Adliberate film http://www.adliberate.co.uk for WoodlandsTV http://www.woodlands.co.uk/tv
