Exclosure? Check...

A few years back we had lots of trees planted in the Whitehope area (opposite end of the site to the BeefTub and just below Hartfell).


Every month at Corehead we try to get out and do a full check of our deer exclosure. The idea is to walk the fenceline and have a look for any bits that might need fixing and any gaps that might allow a deer to sneak through and have a chomp on some of our trees.


The walk itself takes about 3hrs and is a bit of a slog up and down some steep valleys. But it's a beautiful stretch with some great views. During the walk we also do a scan within the exclosure for any deer and report this to our deer stalker.

We are looking to recruit any volunteers who would like to help us with this on a monthly basis. The main requirement is a good level of hill fitness. If you would be interested then please email corehead@bordersforesttrust.org.
