All our wood is grown locally in dorset
The Benefits of Managing Local Woodland.
These photos show how the woodland floor has benefited from the opening of the canopy to allow sunlight in. Resulting in a carpet of woodland flowers, including bluebells, wood anemoies, primroses and violets to name but a few.
They show how the woods have been thinned to provide The Dorset Charcoal Company with the material for this seasons charcoal production.
Opening up the woodland floor
Below are some photographs from Bonsley Wood and Great Coll Wood in Dorset taken in May 2010 and 2011. These photos show the benefits to the woodland floor with incresed sunlight and the resultant explosion of flowers, brought about as a result of the thinning that has occurred to provide us with wood for charcoal production.
