    Hawthorn Coppcing @ Highwoods Country Park

    With Colchester Biodiversity Action Team (Sunday)

    About 2.2 miles away from your postcode

    At High Woods Country Park

    Activity description

    Woodcock Down in Highwoods Country Park consists of areas of scrub and open areas of grassland as well as smaller grassy rides and glades through the scrub. Scrub is particularly beneficial to wildlife where it consists of a mix of ages and species and where the rides and glades provide variation in the habitat for a wider range of species. For this task we will be coppicing hawthorn trees to diversify the age and structure of scrub and to widen rides.
