Axe Workshop & Tree Interpretation

Come and learn from us about tree identification, the language of trees, and then how to use your tools safely.

Using our many years of experience working in woodland environments, our team will work with you through this weekend on initially how to identify trees- utilising some of their unique "tricks" to open up the world of tree identification to you.

Of course, the practical aspect also includes a large amount of axe work during daylight hours. Here you will learn how to fell, limb, log up and split different woods using an axe. We also cover appropriate tool choice. We will cover the legal framework surrounding the use of sharp edged tools.

You will also learn on this course the language of trees, how they grow, how they react to environmental conditions, and then how they can be managed beneficially for the environment. All of these skills are learnt in a practical setting, there is no "death by PowerPoint" here! You will be in the woods, watching the woods, interpreting the woods, and truly connecting with the woodland environment.

Places on this course are severely restricted to ensure the quality and safety of the course information presented. We guarantee you an instructor ratio of 1-4.
