Tree trimming a training opportunity

An intrepid team from Telford Rural Polytechnic Arboriculture Certificate course came to Roland's Wood during May and again in November for some practical experience in silviculture - tree management.

HortTraining, part of Telford Polytech, runs this short course on every facet of arboriculture.  They find Roland's Wood especially helpful as they provide opportunities for the students to experience a wide range of trees and their different requirements.
They especially like the rope climbing! Their peals of laughter resonate around the Woods as they grapple with getting off the ground and into the branches.
