Yup. Bloody stuff is a pain in the summer and winter. Will be going out in an hour or two to check our main site about 300 metres away from me. But will be checking a local wood with some full leaf, Kretz infested splittting Beech and lots of Armilaria damaged sycamore in full leaf too.

6 trees in one gust. 5 Cherries and a scrawny Ash and all on a main road into town. Could have dealt with it but don't have keys to the shipping container. So got hold of the tree team to deal with.

Few bits to clear up in London over the weekend, expecting some more over the next couple of days.

Just finished cutting up a mature  pine that came down in South East area yesterday in the strong winds. Pine had a bracket growing up it just below where it snapped and fell, hollowing trunk and ivy growing inside it. But still full of life on top. Until yesterday.... 


Bits and pieces all over the estate after winds of about 45mph down here.
