Parkland tree comes crashing down !

It is always a sad day when a tree which is over a 100 years old is bought to the ground by inclement weather. This horse chestnut fell victim to last Friday's wind and rain, this is the second major limb to fall from this tree in the last 5 years.

The decision now is to see if the rest is worth saving or we let other recently planted parkland trees flourish in the vacated space. The beech, oak and ash trees planted 10 years ago are now a a parkland feature in their own right. The 50 apple trees planted last year will also help ease the pain !
