Sheeps Wool Trial

Sunday 14 May 2017

We have just completed a small natural protection trial using sheep's wool at our Reilly Road landfill woodland project.  We planted dense clumps of aspen which is highly palatable to deer, surrounded by some gorse.  We then wrapped sheep's wool around the stems to see if this would be effective as a deterrent against deer browsing as described in the literature.
