The planting commences

Our first of 7 small copses to be planted, with the help of friends. This is a new division between pastures, with a path through from top to bottom. Each fence line has hedgerow planting close to the fence so the growth will come through for sheep to browse. These will also provide shelter and windbreak along with habitat. The underplanting will come later, developing herbaceous layers, creating different opportunities, and supplies for pollinators.
