Snedding with an axe

Unfortunately ash die back is present in our ancient woodland and so we’ve been felling those that are afflicted.  Once felled, the side branches need to be taken off; this is known as snedding.

In this short video I demonstrate how to sned with an axe.

We look at snedding with an axe on our Axe Workshop.

You can see plenty of photos from this course on our Facebook page.
