Restoring an Arboretum

by WoodlandsTV ~ 27 January, 2016 ~ 7 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

Here we see cabinet-makers Jeff Segal, Paul Shrubshall and Andrew Marsh as they work together to mill a giant beech tree using an Alaskan chainsaw. The 200-year old tree was rotten with disease and therefore unsafe to leave growing within a residential environment. Keen conservationists, they like to use recycled timber in their work and hope to find `Spalted Beech` to incorporate within their designs.
