The DFT volunteers are actively involved with the management of the forest at all levels. They work alongside one part time forester to achieve the management plan and the Trust's mission statement.

This is accomplished in two ways:

  • Firstly, a core group of chainsaw-trained people help with felling and windthrow clearance to provide wood for sale, and also undertake the never-ending job of splitting some of the wood for the monthly sale.
  • Secondly, the ‘green gym’ volunteers work on Thursday mornings thinning, pruning, grass cutting, weeding the nursery, planting and caring for saplings and bridge building and repair.
