    Hi all,

    I have only recently joined but I have been browsing the forum for about 3 months now and having been impressed with the community here I thought I would finally take the plunge and say hello!

    Though new to 'bushcraft' I am no stranger to the outdoors having been lucky enough to work as an assistant ranger with the National Trust for the past 8 years and before that working in the forestry industry. Last year I fulfilled a life long ambition of purchasing a woodland of my own (just under 7 1/2 acres, mostly neglected Hornbeam coppice) and my interested in practising traditional 'bushcrafty' skills has grown steadily since.

    I very much look forward to getting to know you all!

    Welcome to the forum.
    There are a few of us that are 'custodians' of small woodlands so there's a bit of experience to pick at (though, I suspect, we are all still learning :) )

    Welcome "Wanderingman"
    As Broch has already mentioned a few of us are woodland owners.
    Like yourself I bought mine in the last few years and of a similar size.
    Enjoy the forum
