Restoring an Arboretum

by WoodlandsTV ~ 27 January, 2016 ~ 8 comments

We hear from Rebecca Cork who is heading up a conservation project to restore a historically and culturally rich arboretum for community use. The arboretum was first designed and planted in the 19th century and enjoys over 300 rare and champion trees - including one of the most varied collections of oaks in the UK. With the fantastic support of volunteers, woodland experts and local historians, Bec is keen to learn from this unusual ecosystem - allowing the environment to guide the renovation process. http://tortwortharboretum.org An Adliberate film http://www.adliberate.co.uk for WoodlandsTV http://www.woodlands.co.uk/tv

How to Make Laths

by WoodlandsTV ~ 27 May, 2015 ~ 18 comments

Here we see how to make traditional handmade wooden laths from Sweet Chestnut - used in lime plastering construction and heritage restoration work. Experts Justin Owen and his sons Jack and Curtis, and friend and colleague Bobby, carry out this skilled craft on the mixed woodland they coppice. Care is taken from the initial selection and cutting of the managed wood through to the stacking and storing of the bundles. The skilful splitting of the wood follows the grain to ensure the durability of each lath and the uneven surface of the laths offers additional grab for the lime plaster.
