Bridgewater canal staff chip in to lend a helping hand at Spud Wood

In February staff and contractors from the Bridgewater Canal Company spent a day helping the Friends of Spud Wood (FOSW) and the Woodland Trust to clear and chip brash in Spud Wood.

The brash is a bi-product of the wood allotment tree thinning work that the FOSW have been carrying out for the past 5 years and this had resulted in large volumes of brash within the wood.

The work day helped to reduce the amount of brash left on the ground. The work of the FOSW group helps the Woodland Trust to minimise the management running costs of the woodland and the work day with the Bridgewater Canal Company also contributes to this.
