Reducing the Catherine parr oak at thorp perrow arboretum today.

Had strict instructions from curator and a consultant as to where to cut as they had decided to significantly reduced the sail of the Crown in an exempt to save the tree.

It truly is a massive tree at over 400year old, shame it's so badly decayed.

If they were that concerned about the tree have they not left it a bit late giving you the go-ahead on doing the work?:confused1: Surely the saps rising? Just my thoughts, sure others will know better.:001_rolleyes:

Think it's about 10years too late if I'm perfectly honest!

Awkward one as ground conditions didn't really allow for us to get in till now as that whole end of the arboretum is very wet so I think that had some bairing on timing as did the council dragging heals on permissioning the works wanting far end of a fart details I got the impression.

When I started this thread a few years back, I never thought it would see over 7000 posts :)

 

Here's one from today, we have 9 willows to dismantle along by gulivers land travels in Milton Keynes.

They are being replaced with an avenue of hornbeams

Turning some dead standing Scots pines into habitat poles. Winched some tops out and also fracture pruned some.

Put bat holes into the stems too.
