Scrub Bashing & Tree-Planting @ Burgess Field Nature Park, North Oxford | England | United Kingdom

Our first visit of the year to Burgess Field, a large reserve in North Oxford that borders Port Meadow. The plan for today is to work on the Eastern edge of the site.

We’ll clear one or two discrete areas of scrub and then replant saplings to create pockets of new woodland. The long-term plan is to develop a series of these pockets along the length of the boundary with the railway to rejuvenate the barrier of woodland and to compensate for the expected future loss of the ash trees hereabouts.
