Poplar felling

Submitted by on February 3, 2014 – 11:19 am2 Comments

The felling of two areas of poplar in the Millennium Country Park should commence this week (weather permitting) The poplars are coming to the end of their lives and are now presenting a health and safety risk. This will be a great opportunity to replant these areas with mixed native broadleaved woodland. For the duration of the felling, which should be about a week, short diversions will be in place along unsurfaced paths. The diversions will take people away from the felling activity and are in place to ensure public safety. Please note the diversions are likely to be soft/muddy under foot. There will also be vehicles taking the felled timber off site so please take note of signage and keep dogs on leads and children under close supervision when asked.

    This ‘work’ is far too slow and causing too much disruption. When will it ever end?

      Thanks for commenting. You commented on the post about the work at Gap Wood. We don’t think this really disrupted things on the paths; did you mean the wind turbine? Assuming that’s the case, there’s a strong chance that the paths will be back to good condition in around a month. This is subject to all sorts of factors out of our control – not least the weather. I hope you continue to visit and enjoy the Park.
