Lock and Release

I am close to completing a carbon sequestration sampling and woodland surveying job with my mentor in a lovely Cornish woodland. By estimating how much carbon a woodland can capture, you gain knowledge of the potential a woodland has in order to better manage it for the onset of climate change. It's been fun learning...

Last and First

As I'm writing, we are officially sailing through the first day of 2021 in the UK, so firstly a very Happy New Year to us all. Yesteryear was probably - for a lot of people - a branch that we'd like to snap across our knee. Although our boundaries and freedom have changed drastically, a... Continue Reading →

The Fading Light

The trees are calling I move my feet A foot in front of the other Round the fringes I proceed Step into the sanctuary A place I recognise Through my darkest hour In the evening's disguise My eyes are holding onto The last remaining light As I listen to the water My heart gently burns...

The importance of feeling loved By the trees that love me back with their crowns above... Continue Reading →

Wind, Water, Wood

Yesterday we were taken on a 5.5 mile walk around Bradiford and into a lovely little wood called Tutshill Wood. To get there we had to cut across open grassy fields of nothingness; all that lovely space for the freedom to spring our arms open and embrace the sun in glee. However it was a... Continue Reading →

A Lifting Woodland Walk

Last week, lockdown restrictions lifted ever so slightly, which means we can now drive to somewhere for a walk. The first place I really wanted to get out to was my favourite local woodland walk, about a 10-minute drive away. I recall the first time I came across this little gem of a place. I...
