New access to the woodland

The Co-op has been given access by Mike and Kathy Smyth to work in their 37 acres of woodland which adjoins Springbok Estate.  This hasn’t had any serious management for some decades and is overgrown and difficult to access so first of all the rides are being opened up and widened.   The work is being undertaken by a local forest contractor, Joe Court.  Almost all the timber being felled has no market value but should have a biomass value to the Co-op because it is so close to the boiler house so transportation costs can be kept down.
