Wood chipping

Coppiced hazel and hedge trimmings are stored between alleys 37 and 38 drying for about a year before being chipped for use as mulch and as biomass for our biomass boiler.

The wood there comes from the hazels in hazel field and the willows in willow field.

We then hire in a big chpper for a few hours like this.
