Willow tree

This week we were at Royd House Wood doing some more felling. Fellers involved included: myself, Jack, Robert, Lesley, Dave, Guy, Peter W., Philip, Stephen K., Stephen O., John, Jess, Dianne, and Geoff.

Trees for removal had been marked up for us by Kirklees officers. Note the pink spot just visible on the Willow that proved to be Stephen's nemesis.

As with all our projects, the original planting was tightly packed to help the trees get established. After a number of years, some of the trees get removed to allow space for the rest to mature, and it allows a bit of light to the woodland floor so you get bluebells and the like.
