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!
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.
