A rotten tree!

We made a rather sad discovery today as one of our two considerable trees has rotted through. It will need to be taken down carefully by a tree surgeon. The foliage has always looked ropey so it has always been targeted by the moth caterpillars that make patterns on the leaves. As it is attached to our fence by a post this could become messy to take it down.

It will make a big hole in our privacy and we shall keep fingers crossed that it doesn’t affect our sycamore too. I believe it’s a horse chestnut like the other tree we had taken down and have only recently been able to burn on the stove as it’s thoroughly dried out.

Dan said earlier he thought we were going to lose the apple tree this year so clearing the garden may be more radical than I intended…
