Been collecting seeds for a tree planting project! From the top, hawthorn, field maple, spindle, damson, hornbeam, lime and guelder rose. A good start.

 At Moreton Plantation we are currently supervising a massive capital works project to restore heathland and eradicate Rhododendron under our Countryside Stewardship Scheme. It’s a big and expensive job and a new experience for us. We are lucky to have Peter Hart Forestry as our sub contractor which makes the job relatively easy for me personally although Chrissy loses a little sleep over managing the cashflow!
