On a windy and sometimes showery day four keen volunteers set to removing an old fence from in the wood. The aim is for the estate to be able to erect a larger deer-proof fence to enable Ash regeneration without them being nibbled. The hope is that at least some of the Ash will be able to survive Ash die-back.
Quite a hard task to undertake, with some of the fence engulfed in undergrowth, however, we managed to clear nearly half the fence.
Kemerton Conservation Trust is a forward thinking organisation involved in both commercial farming alongside conservation of the landscape and it’s wildlife.
We hope to return to complete the task at the end of July,
