| Site location - multimap aerial view facing south
|| Loading a wheelbarrow with woodchips
|| Raking fresh woodchips onto a woodland path
|| Waiting for the next barrow to fill
|| Edgar starts to fell a pair of dead Elm trees by the path
|| Edgar steps back
| and the first Elm falls safely away from us
|| Audience reaction is ...
|| ... time for a tea-break !
|| Bringing kindling for the fire
| 33 rings on the stump of one of the Elm trees felled today
|| The tree was killed by Honey Fungus under its bark
|| A fruiting body of Honey Fungus, pokes through the bark
|| Honey Fungus is Armillaria mellea - Elm is Ulmus procera
|| Two views of Honey Fungus (and a Sycamore "key")
|| The Honey Fungus is reputedly edible, but not delicious.
| Edgar starts to cut the next dead Elm
|| and it falls to earth
|| The team collects the fallen logs as they are cut
|| and carries them to make habitat piles
|| Cutting logs with a bowsaw keeps you warm in the snow!
