Top Trees of Tortworth

by WoodlandsTV ~ 25 September, 2017 ~ 3 comments

Jacob Stow (@jakeofthewoods), Director of Tortworth Forest Centre at Tortworth Arboretum, takes us on a walk through this historically and culturally rich woodland, speaking with knowledge and passion about some of the `top trees` here, such as the Giant Sequoia, Monkey Puzzle, Sweet Chestnut, Japanese Maple and Western Red Cedar as well as a range of rare and unusual Oaks. Jake shares his enjoyment of discovering, mapping and learning more about these trees. The Arboretum was first designed and planted in the 19th century and Jake explains how its originator, the 3rd Earl of Ducie, acquired many unusual and exotic plants from around the world to impress with his knowledge of trees and his social status. Today the team is keen to restore the Arboretum - looking at original records, replenishing lost trees and using viable seeds from existing trees to continue the Arboretum into the future. http://tortwortharboretum.org .

Bat Conservation

by WoodlandsTV ~ 30 August, 2017 ~ 13 comments

Here Jenny Clark MBE, founder of the Sussex Bat Hospital and dedicated bat conservationist and wildlife educator, shares her expertise and passion for her work in caring for grounded and injured bats. Jenny introduces us to some of her rescued bats - Noctule, Whiskered, Common Pipistrelle and Brown Long-Eared - and explains how she must first carry out an all-round health check on each one, including looking for and treating any injuries. When each bat is fit and well and has reached ideal weight, it must then pass the `flying test` - assessed for skills, stamina and attitude - before it can be successfully released back into the wild. This will be impossible for some bats - but they then become part of Jenny`s team of educators - giving members of the public the opportunity to encounter bats and to learn more about the importance of bat conservation. Jenny`s expert, gentle care for the bats is clear, as is her wealth of knowledge as she speaks about what we can all do to help protect and preserve our native bat species. http://www.bats.org.uk/ An Adliberate film http://www.adliberate.co.uk for WoodlandsTV http://www.woodlands.co.uk/tv
