The Value of Being a Learner

I'm going to get my thoughts out this very moment when I'm just a little bit heartbroken. Of course you can say that when one is disappointed it can make them do impulsive things. Like write a blog post maybe? Unfortunately that isn't entirely my frame of mind right now. I'm more interested in exploring... Continue Reading →

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.

I was excited to be working again with my friend Stuart in his private woodland; it has definitely been awhile since lockdown! We had... 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.
