How to Use an Iron Horse

by WoodlandsTV ~ 19 October, 2017 ~ 12 comments

Here we see Iain setting up and using an Iron Horse to extract timber from the woodland. This system is ideally suited to a small-scale woodland - the Iron Horse has agility and strength but low ground pressure so does less damage to the woodland floor; it also enables manoeuvrability within a dense woodland and helps both with loading and unloading the timber stack - especially if you are working alone to clear timber.

This video in the Bushcraft Tools series focuses on tools that can be made from natural materials you can find around you in the woodlands. Here Annette Stickler explains how she made two different types of hammers for different jobs using branches from nearby trees. Not only is the process of making these tools great for honing your bushcraft skills but they also last an incredibly long time and won’t cost you a penny!

How to Work a Mobile Sawmill

by WoodlandsTV ~ 26 July, 2016 ~ 2 comments

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 ~ 13 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
