Major forestry work underway

In the last week or so the foresters have been hard at work. They have cleared the trees from a wide strip at the back of the yews on both sides. It seems to me to have opened up the sky. The yews look much better without conifers behind them. Of course the Redwoods that Eric planted 40 years ago are just splendid!

 

 

 

 

 

 

And look who’s been out and about nearby!

Renovation Complete

The renovation of the trees in Yew Tree Avenue, Clipsham is complete.  The trees look wonderful. Further work will be required in years to come.  Euan the Tree Surgeon, says that the shapes can be improved once the trees have had a chance to grow after this first cut.  So work will continue and further funds will be required.   Please consider https://yewtreeavenue.co.uk/support-us/sponsor-a-tree/

an easy way to keep the work going.

Pot holes filled

We had a wonderful morning today when 14 fantastic people came and filled the potholes in the car park with 5 tonnes of road planings that were donated to us. Thanks to Shirley Hope, Rachael and John Dawson,
