Some SSCG members had a day planting Willow at Shadow Woods. Clive Cobie and Graham Bowbrick sent in some pictures.

Graham said:

Brinsbury had some willow that they had been coppicing for weaving and some of it was no longer needed so  Chris removed it and another section needed cutting back , we loaded it on his trailer and took it to Shadow woods where we sorted it into colours and size, all the rods 5/8” and above were cut to 18”lengths and pushed into the prepared bed by about 10”, we spaced them about 10” apart so they grow straight, the technical details were given to us by Michelle Clifford

If you have any pictures or stories to share, please send them in.
