Pruned back at the T shaped jetty in the upper park, continuing the work of the previous Wednesday. (23/11/16) Before that cut back lengths of of hotly to fill four bags at the visitors center car park. Late in the day we had to the forest schools area to showed up equip-pings from the path. As there was only one wheelbarrow with a flat tire it took longer to move then necessary.
