Sutton Park Tree Felling!

Last week Cedars finished their time at Forest School, by helping to collect some new resources for the coming term. They were a fantastic help to Mrs. Smith and Danny the Park Ranger, assisting in selecting, cutting down and chopping up two silver birch trees, ready  for the new classes to use to make forest crafts.

First, they found a tree that was the perfect size, then checked to see which direction it was leaning in. We all stood back at a safe distance, while Danny firstly cut a wedge from the front of the tree and then cut the back to make it fall. We all shouted “TIMBER!”

Then we all had to work together to carry the heavy tree to the path, before trimming and cutting it into logs. Lastly, we loaded the logs into Danny’s land rover, ready to take to our minibus and back to school!

Well done Cedars. Thank-you for your help.
