Blacklands Copse woodland management 2016 programme

Work will begin on the 2016 Blacklands Copse harvesting programme in July.

Please see the attached map showing the various parcels of timber to be worked. The felling of Cpt 9a will no doubt have the biggest impact with regard to noise & visual disturbance. Timings are somewhat weather/ground conditions dependant but the harvesting works should take in the region of 4-6 weeks and a further 1 to 2 weeks of further machine work to tidy compartment 9a & 7f of brash.

The fencing and planting work will then follow at some point next winter 2016/17.

There will be in the region of 1,500 Tonne of timber being extracted, so the stacking area and harvesting sites will be very busy with machinery. Please take notice of (conform with) all warning & instructional signs, as Health and Safety is of paramount importance.
