Hi, I’m very sorry to miss this. We’ve been having a go at making and feeding tree hay and would really like to learn more and talk about it. However, Thursdays are no good for me. If there is a recording of the event somewhere I would be very interested. Thanks Ali

I saw this in action in SW Norway during the Reforesting Scotland Norway Study Tour. Spring comes late in Setedal and young willow branches and shoots go down well with hungry livestock.

This was a really popular event and very good. I definitely recommend watching it if you have an interest in agroforestry…
