This morning Duncan, Harvey the dog, Brian and Peter went up to Wholestone Moor to carry on guarding vulnerable oaks. Unfortunately Brian was knocked over by a boisterous dog (not Harvey) and had to retreat wounded, with Peter's help. Duncan stayed on and guarded 25 trees.
This morning we were at Marsden Golf Course Hemplow Wood. We began by beating down some bracken on the side of Butterley Clough, rescuing some young trees from a shadowy doom. Then moved up into Marsden Golf Course phase 1 to do some formative pruning. For the entire morning there were clouds of Midges attempting to consume us. We consumed home made ginger cake. We were, myself, Geoff, Jess, Steve, Guy and Remy.
