New (ish) woodland.

Recommended Posts

A couple of snaps from a drone, taken yesterday, also have a bit of flyover footage which I'll post sometime in the future when I've time to edit it. I think this will be a much better way to document the woodlands development in future now that it's getting up a bit.

Seventh season now, even from above you can really see the disparity between the fast growing things like Alder, Birch, and Cherry, and the slower things, primarily the oaks!

 

Will be adding more pics and videos over the next few months as time permits.

Thanks, good to see. I've been planting trees out for the past two or three years now; I'm nowhere near canopy closure yet, apart from in a few stands for coppicing which I've planted quite close together.

It's about seven and a half acres (2.95 hectares to be precise!), growth this year has been meteoric!

 

No problem Marcus, next time you're Ballymena direction give me a shout.

That's why I bought my drone so I could see how well my woodland was doing

Good for a new perspective on other things too, this was our last hay of 2019 just after mowing a few weeks ago.

I planted the entire area at 2m but due to variation in growth rates I've got canopy closure in some places but still a long way off in others.

 

Such a transformation when it happens.
