Winter Bushcraft Projects: Big Ash Tree | Snow | Saw Horse [EPISODE 1]

Winter snow arrived early in the woods. Join me as I go through what winter bushcraft projects I am planning to do in my woodland. I build a sawhorse from hazel trees that had blown down in a storm. I also begin work on bucking up the top of the giant fallen ash tree and stack the logs ready for seasoning for use next year. I also survey the various trees on my land, and set up trail cameras to try and see what wildlife walk through the woodland during darkness and daylight hours. I also relief cut some of the ivy that is growing up the ancient oak trees on the border of my woods. Thanks for watching, episode 2 coming soon!

  1. Well, I just saw one of the nasty little comments….who do people think they are??? To feel like they have a right to tell you Anything!! Oh my gosh……must be an English thing cause down here where I am you get that shot gun turned on you..lololol.
    Good luck young man. Everything you talked about sounded good to me and will put you up in my prayer list 🙏 Take Care and Thank you for sharing with us. 👍❣👍🌹👍🌹👍🌹👍

  2. Recently, using lidar, archaeologists have discovered that the ENTIRE AMAZON BASIN, and in fact much of The Americas were MANAGED landscapes; long before the arrival of Europeans.
    No metal, no wheels, no large beasts of burden.
    Wood and stone tools, fire and thousands of years of observation and experience.
    It's in our DNA. It's what we were meant to do.
    We don't need to leave this planet. We need to manage and care for it; like our ancestors.
    That's what you are doing.
    And it's AWESOME!

  3. I do alot of squirrel pest control and you'll probably find your best way to control the greys will be to set up a feeder. Feeders have a couple of benefits, first one being it feeds the native song birds in your woodland. Which is great as natural food sources this year are scarce. Secondly it draws in the greys which if you build a permanent hide you could shoot them with a sub 12 air rifle. Protecting your native trees and song bird chicks and eggs from being eaten by the greys. You'll notice the difference in bird populations massively increases with time and allows you to keep a nature camera on the feeder monitoring the song bird population in the woodland.

  4. That is a great looking piece of land. The possibilities of doing things there. Quick question: how many acres is your woods and how is it bordered? Reason I ask is, as a retired Firefighter, how is access to it if God forbid you have a brushfire or other type of emergency happen? Is there road access for the fire department to get onto the property quickly & easily? I responded to many brush fires and emergencies during my career to areas that were well off the road with no vehicle access and let me just say, 'humping it' across a large field on foot to gain access to fight a fire or tend to an injured person in the woods is in the top 3 things that really suck. You should consider an access plan and share it with your local department in the event it ever happens. Just my 2 cents.

  5. Here in NZ we would say you are the current kaitiaki — guardian of that land. The maori people here have the traditional concept of Kaitiakitunga — guardianship/stewardship rather than ownership of land that I love and have adopted. People come and go, the land endures, but as Kaitiaki we can change the manner in which it is left once we pass. Great work Mike, cant wait to see more.

  6. Thank you for sharing the information about the ivy. I found it fascinating

    I'm excited to see this journey because you have such a love of nature. Your idea for the ash tree seems like a perfect blend of utility and nature. I can't wait to see how old it was because it is huge!

  7. Stop worrying about” if you will upset anyone with the decisions you make !!! ” , it’s YOUR land and it’s obviously you love the forest and will make the best decisions for your forest. If the internet viewers/ trolls have a different opinion they should go out and buy their own forest and do what they think is best .

  8. tbh I would be disappointed if you didn't work with your woodland. Being a good steward looks bad to some observers but those people are non-interventionists and they will never be pleased no matter what. They don't understand the role. It's ultimately for the health, promotion, and longevity of the forest and the end results are always a very positive net benefit.

  9. There's something about a Robin in a British snowfall, that brings me a lot of nostalgia from my childhood, in the 90s running around in the forests in winter looking for robins, like on the Christmas cards we would send out.
