Make dead wood piles

We've lost lots of mature trees and dead wood from our environment. Even when they're dead, trees are really valuable to many bug and fungi species which rely on them for food and shelter.

Bigger creatures like to hide among them, too.

By creating a logpile in your garden, you can help nature hang on. Stack up dead wood anywhere in your garden and you'll be doing something really easy that's great for wildlife.
