Tree crate carpenters get to work at Reabrook event in The National Forest

National Forest sponsor Reabrook Limited gathered saws, hammers and spades for a day out in the woods with employees and their families recently. Staff were invited to help put the finishing touches to the company's sponsored woodland at Boothorpe, a few hundred yards from the company's buildings at Moira, near Ashby de la Zouch.

New Woodland Takes Root in Wychnor

Montgomery Wood offers visitors fantastic views across the River Trent to Wychnor, with stunning views of St Leonard's parish church. This 2.3ha (5.7 acre) wood has been created by local businessman Chris Montgomery who runs a landscaping business based in Burton. Chris bought the land a few years ago and decided to create the woodland under the National Forest Changing Landscapes Scheme to provide wildlife habitat, access and wood for fuel.

Spring and other seasonal delights

The National Forest Wood Fair in the rain

The National Forest Wood Fair in the rain

It was a blessing it hadnít rained in the night. But 6am arrived and the first spots started. I bravely tweeted ďCome and walk the National Forest Way in the dry!Ē - referring to the miniature version of the route we had laid out in the shelter of our marquee - and set off to the site.
