Storm Damage

Friday, April 6th 2012

Although the wintery weather seems to have been replaced with blue skies, the stormy weather has left its mark on the reserve. Many sections of path were completely blocked this morning by the branches that were broken from trees during Tuesday night's storm. The damage was widespread and affected many different trees from small Hawthorn and Birch to large Willow and Scots Pine.

Tidy Up

Some of the branches were small enough to be removed with bow saws and loppers. However, most had to be cut with a chainsaw.

Clearing up storm damage

Thanks to Graham, Bethany, Brian and Tony who all gave up their spare time to clear away the damage, the paths are all passable once again.
