About the farm:
David and Ruth are converting 20 hectares of mixed broadleaf plantation to productive continuous cover forestry on Bron Haul Farm, North Wales. Their business Broadleaf.Wales sells products from the woodland and they regularly share their skills and experience through courses, mentoring and woodland management planning. They’re both passionate about maximising the value from native broadleaf woodlands in Wales.

The visit will involve a short tour around the planted woodland and will focus on the following topics:

  • Guidance on how and when to prune broadleaf trees to maximise their long-term timber value.
  • Practical advice on species mix and tree spacings for productive woodlands in Wales.
  • Information on establishing new trees; mulching, weed control and tree guards
  • The importance of squirrel control for high quality timber production
  • Advice on how to turn a field of planted trees into a woodland ecosystem
