Pasture Wood pastoralism

Artful shot of some Alder
This morning myself, Ben, Dan, Peter and Geoff went up to Pasture Wood above Marsden to inspect the trees planted there 7 years ago, and to remove and reclaim stakes and guards. Growth up there has been slow, but we were pleasantly surprised to see the vast majority of the trees are establishing themselves. Geoff was particularly impressed with the Alder (see photo).We came home with around 80 reclaimed guards, a mix of hare and rabbit lengths, and around 125 long stakes. Still lots more work to be done up there.
