Larch Wood

Peter & Sarah FitzGerald have decided to fell the majority of the larch in the small wood immediately above Pen Mill Farm.
They are nearly 90 years old and were planted as a nurse crop to protect the young oak, which they have been holding back for some years.
We are unlikely to make a profit, but it is in the best interests of the wood. We apologise for any inconvenience while the work is carried out.
