Tree Felling

Friday, November 30th 2012

An area of diseased and damaged sycamore at the top of the woodland was felled today, in preparation for the Winter Work Day this coming Saturday where we will be brashing and clearing these trees.

The trees here have been damaged by Grey Squirrels who chew through the bark in order to get the sweet sap.  This stunts growth and allows fungus and infection in.  Once cleared, the area will be replanted with a mix of native trees.

Tree need care and there is must need of proper tree service so that the tree never fell because of this issue. Replanting is good but initial care can prevent the felling of trees.
