Hutting Part Two: Ninian Stuart

by WoodlandsTV ~ 13 March, 2020 ~ 5 comments

"If you have a piece of land and want to build a little getaway for the weekend, it's actually not that hard", says Ninian Stuart of the Falkland Estate in Fife. Ninian's hut is to him a "Do Nothing Hut", so named by some friends who wrote a haiku poem about it. It's a place to be still, to breathe, to take a break from busy life and remember who you are.

River Keekle Restoration

by WoodlandsTV ~ 28 February, 2020 ~ 26 comments

Woodlands have been working with the West Cumbria Rivers Trust to restore the River Keekle near Whitehaven in Cumbria. It was an open cast coal mine until the early nineties, when the riverbed was lined with plastic in an attempt to keep buried toxic waste out of the river. The river restoration project is now removing this horrible plastic and repairing the river to a more natural state, to prevent flooding and restore the health and biodiversity of the surrounding area.

Beavers and Biodiversity

by WoodlandsTV ~ 24 January, 2020 ~ 8 comments

Did you know that beavers have a ripple effect on the biodiversity of their habitat? The way they change and manage the landscape creates a haven for wildlife and the ecosystem as a whole, including small mammals, birds of prey, plants, trees and lichens, invertebrates and water-dwellers. Thanks again to Louise Ramsay and the Bamff Estate in Perthshire.
