It’s nearly time for the many of the trees in the garden to be cut down to make room for new things.
- the leylandii take up so much space in the garden, not to mention light and water, that it will be hard to do much interesting stuff with them still there
- the plum tree is old and diseased. While it did give us some nice plums this year, it’s not healthy, and not in a particularly good location for our plans
- the holly tree… quite a wonderful tree, but unfortunately not in a great position
- the poplar tree is, unfortunately, leaning dangerously and appears to be diseased, so we’ve been advised to remove it. A shame, it’s a beautiful tree.
