Demonstration will include techniques like ‘Coronet Pruning’ and how you can create bird boxes by either using pre‐existing cavities or creating them with the use of a saw. You will learn how you can attract the type of animal you are creating habitat for by the size and location of the holes you create, such as making large angled upward cuts into the side of a standing log creates a great space for bats to roost.
