About Slash and burn!Clearing and bonfires galore as you help the rangers to improve habitats for wildlife.
Spend a couple of days on to the Ysbyty Estate carrying out a variety of woodland tasks to improve habitats for wildlife, from woodland clearance and brashing to thinning out newly planted plots. Then head off to the Meirionnydd properties, where we'll be cutting and burning gorse to improve grassland habitats on some of the National Trust's most scenic properties.
