Young trees

There are about 80 trees in the grass, most were planted in Autumn 2005. The majority were bare rooted but they are not obviously different from those that came in pots. We are intending to incorporate groups of trees into island beds, over the next few years. This will allow us to use the increasing protection from the strong winds that the hedge and trees will give, as they mature.

A 2015 snap of some of the trees, many of which have long since outgrown their "young" description

"The Thrones" and a log bench - after fun with the chainsaw.

Our very first tree (Giant Redwood) planted by moonlight!

How the trees looked in 2006.

How they looked a couple of years ago - Pauline is hiding behind that tree again!

Not so "Young", some of these trees now!

More recent fun with the chainsaw (the Alder was gettiing too tall)
and we are always happy to have toadstools!
