High Winds on the Estate
13th January 2012
Sadly this Turkey Oak weakened by bracket fungus was brought down by the high winds.
This species of Oak was introduced to the UK from the new world about 400 years ago to aid the ship building programs as it grows faster than our native species. We will split and bag the entire tree, then store for about 2 years before using the wood on the open fires and log burner in the house. Roll on winter 2014.
