Saturday volunteers at Logan’s

Before the snow the Saturday volunteers enjoyed a beautiful sunny day at Logan’s meadow last weekend. The laid front hedge was given a tidy up and gaps were filled with tree whips of native species. Due to some of the larger trees falling in the wind and others being pollarded the central space in the reserve became a viable area to plant some more trees. New trees will give a more varied structure to the woodland and therefore increase the available habitats for species. Osiers were the chosen species to plant here. This beautiful willow will hopefully thrive in this wet woodland and provide a great source of early nectar for many foraging bees and pollinators come the spring.
