So just over a year ago our Forestry & Countryside Management students began restoring this undermanaged Oak plantation we had on the campus. The ground was overgrown with a thick layer of bracken and brambles due to years of neglect and over 70% of the original oak trees had suffered extreme crown damage by grey squirrels resulting in them needing to be felled and replaced. We had some great weather today and we finished off the planting. As you can see theres been quite a few casualties but hopefully soon we'll have some new @goodnature_traps_uk humane squirrel traps helping us lower the grey squirrel numbers.

Short video of the Mus-max chipper Wood Energy Wales had on site today. Most of the logs it was putting through were +60cm diameter and 3.9m in length with a few +80cm thrown in for good measure.

This morning it was great to welcome Carwyn from Wood Energy Wales on site to chip our softwood stack Their new Fendt tractor is a beauty and she's HUGE!! All that power showed when Carwyn managed to chip the stack in under an hour and a half.
Forestry students later measured the total amount of chip to be an estimated 218 m3/98tonne.
Thanks once again Wood Energy Wales for their excellent service! .
Roedd hi'n wych croesawu Carwyn o Wood Energy Wales ar y safle i chipio stac coed meddal. Roedd eu tractor Fendt newydd yn ANFERTH! Torrodd Carwyn y stac mewn llai na awr a hanner.
Wedyn mesurodd myfyrwyr coedwigaeth yr sglodion i fod yn amcangyfrif o 218 m3 neu 98 tunall.

Diolch unwaith eto i Wood Energy Wales am eu gwasanaeth ardderchog!

Stunning patch of Douglas fir that's been thinned, pruned and cared for by the students over the years.

Great work by the Level 2 #Forestry and #Countryside management group this morning. Their aim was to clear a patch of #Rhododendron ponticum as part of the college's on going work to clear #invasive non native species under the #Glastir #Woodland grant scheme. Its great to see an enthusiastic bunch of #students getting stuck in. The control of Rhododendron ponticum also covers part of their habitats unit as they learnt of the detrimental effect Ponticum has on our native flora. .
Gwaith gwych gan y grŵp Coedwigaeth a Rheoli Cefn Gwlad Lefel 2 y bore yma. Eu nod oedd clirio darn o Rododendron Ponticum fel rhan o waith parhaus Coleg Glynllifon i glirio rhywogaethau anfrodorol ymledol o dan gynllun grant Glastir Coed. Mae'n wych gweld criw brwdfrydig yn bod mor weithgar. Mae rheolaeth Rhododendron Ponticum hefyd yn cwmpasu rhan o'u huned cadwraeth wrth iddynt ddysgu am effaith niweidiol y Rhododendron Ponticum ar ein planhigion cynhenid.
