Bit of a blow

Today’s gusty weather has brought at least two large limbs down. Rob reported a chestnut limb falling near the lodge this morning, and there’s an oak limb impaled in the path next to the former Elizabethan gardens.


The fall of this fractured bough was slowed by the smaller trees, so that the broken tip hit the ground first. With an alarming result.


So if the wind keeps up on Friday, best avoid these woodland areas. Chestnut and sycamore are weak-limbed and brittle, but the fracturing of an oak is indicative of something else again.
