Slow connection? Watch in lower quality
Is there an alternative to the environmentally damaging practice of clear felling commercial forests? Dirk Sporleder from Dronley Woods explains how he uses the technique of Continuous Cover Forestry to achieve the three aims of this community run woodland - biodiversity, recreation and commercial forestry. Dirk shows us the benefits of this approach, including using only lightweight harvesting equipment to protect the forest soil, prioritising 'frame' trees for high value timber and above all ensuring that the woodland has the ecological benefit of tree cover at all times.
