Clearing the wood

The dogs were on edge today because there was a lorry crawling along a section of the drive, picking up the logs and smaller pieces of usable timber from the wood that has recently been coppiced.

They had a Hiab with a mechanical grab, and there were 3 of them: one to gather and bunch the wood, one to operate the Hiab, and one to drive the lorry or whatever else needed doing.

I was pleased to see it happening. If they’d left it much longer, the burst of regrowth would have been damaged when they lifted the timber out.
