Sadly we are going to have to take one of our ash trees down. The good thing will be that some of our lovely view towards the Taw Valley will be opened up a bit
must add - the tree is smothered in ivy with bits breaking off every time we get a high westerly wind, and is in danger of it all coming down.
I'd rather have it down at our safe convenience rather than the wind toppling it in the wrong direction in the middle of a storm! No problem with another ash a few yards away - that's fit and healthy!

and as I have them.... a couple of photos of the Goose and ducks grazing in the orchard
