The barn is in a rural location and sits within some land, some of the land is wooded.
With a heating system consisting of solar thermal hot water panels and a multi-fuel stove, there is a need for fuel to burn. That most of that fuel should come from the woodland and that woodland be properly managed seems to be the most natural thing in the world.
To the right are a summary of the posts on My Barn Conversion related to woodland management.
There’s also a slideshow of my woodland photographs on Picasa – click on any picture to get a better view of them…
Finally, I’ve given some relevant and hopefully interesting links below.
Coed Lleol is a site that ‘aims to help more people enjoy and care for woodlands in Wales’. A interesting read with links off to further sites.
The Woodland Trust is the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity. Some interesting reading on their website and the Shop is recommended – not cheap, but good quality trees.
