RARE horses are being harnessed to help a conservation project in a Sheffield woodland.

Two Clydesdale horses have been brought in by Green Estate, which is carrying out the work in Woolley Wood, Wincobank, to clear felled trees.

Some trunks are being removed to thin the woodland and allow more light to reach the forest floor.

Diseased and dead trunks are also being cleared.

Work started on the Forestry Commission-funded project last week, with horses being used to transport the logs rather than vehicles to minimise damage to trees, soil, flora and fauna.
