Owning a Woodland: Sharing health.

by WoodlandsTV ~ 4 December, 2020 ~ 3 comments

Another film in our woodland ownership series!

Does it make you feel better to have spent time in the woods? As a woodland owner, Pam at Higher Druid Wood in Devon noticed the positive changes in herself from spending time working and being on the land, feeling stronger and healthier both mentally and physically. So she decided to invite the local community to come and join her, so they could feel better, too. From forest schools to women's groups, sharing health, sharing skills, and shared experiences by sharing land – this is a film about nurturing good health and offering that experience to others in a way that helps create a ripple effect of benefits into the wider world.

Thanks to Pam Macdonald at Higher Druid Wood.

Pam at Higher Druid Wood is growing several different blocks of hazel for various purposes, including coppicing for making hurdles and other useful structures, and using the nuts for making hazelnut oil and other edibles.

Growing a Woodland: Tree Nursery

by WoodlandsTV ~ 13 November, 2020 ~ 3 comments

Back at Higher Druid Wood, Pam shows us round the community tree nursery, explaining why growing from local seed is better than shipping from commercial tree nurseries located elsewhere, and the different types of trees that will go on to be planted in the new woodland on her land, and wherever the trees are needed around the nearby town of Ashburton.

Growing A Woodland: Ten Years In

by WoodlandsTV ~ 6 November, 2020 ~ one comment

Pam Macdonald introduces us to her now ten-year-old woodland at Higher Druid Wood on the edge of Dartmoor, showcasing the different species and reasons for growing, including carbon capture, climate resilience, creating a wildlife corridor, increased biodiversity, soil replenishment, and edible produce. It's surprising how tall trees can grow in only ten years!

Growing a Woodland: Spiral of Oaks

by WoodlandsTV ~ 23 October, 2020 ~ one comment

After learning about how trees communicate with each other in the book 'The Hidden Life of Trees', nurseryman Philip Nieuwoudt was inspired to plant a little oak woodland on a corner of his land in South Devon, so that the trees could talk to each other. As a creative person who spends his days growing multi-stem ornamental trees for landscape designers, Philip decided to plant his oaks in a spiral, so that hundreds of years from now, they might be seen from above and wondered at by anyone flying past... It's also an example of a healthy seven-year-old woodland in a meadow rich with unexpected biodiversity.

Owning a Woodland with the Family

by WoodlandsTV ~ 16 October, 2020 ~ comments welcome

In this film, we visit the Morton family – Andy, Jane, and five-year-old Thomas – to ask how they use the woodland and what each of them loves most about being in their woods. With plenty of imagination and hard work, they've used the space and its abundant natural resources to create opportunities for a range of activities with different groups of people: building beautiful structures, shelters and a private family cabin for overnight stays; as a resource for forest school activities and running craft courses; using wood, water and clay from the land; being with friends and meeting other young families, and as a special place where they can simply be together, with everything they need to be comfortable away from home. What would you do with a woodland of your own?

Concord Clarinets

by WoodlandsTV ~ 18 September, 2020 ~ one comment

If you go down to the woods today, you might hear the lively sound of clarinets on the breeze – at least, if you're in some woods sold by Woodlands.co.uk somewhere near Bristol Airport... The Concord Clarinets are a group of musicians who meet to play for fun and to perform at events. Here, we are treated to a performance in the woods of Clare Hayes, of the timeless classic Teddybear's Picnic.

With thanks to The Concord Clarinets
