This Wednesday Tom Hogan brought his tree chipper to Darnford Park again and with a large enthusiastic group of our volunteers set about reducing the brash from earlier forestry clearance work to wood chips.The remaining logs remain on site and be cut and stacked in retaining walls to protect the specimen trees which are being retained in the final landscaping.
These log stack retaining walls will become habitats for invertebrates and encourage birds and improve the biodiversity in the area of the Lichfield Canal in Darnford Park to compliment the biodiversity improvements completed earlier on the north environmental mound.This cleared area will allow the next key stage of excavation to the lower basin of the canal during this summer and formation of the central environmental mound to full height improving the screening of the A38 for Darnford Park users.
Our thanks to Tom Hogan and all the Trust volunteers who have worked so hard to complete this stage of work in Darnford Park.
