More on Meadows tree cull
|Raphael shows off cross section|
Here is a suggestion. Last year was, by some measures, the least windy year since 1824. Every year diseased or 'end of life' trees are effectively culled in high winds. With 1350 trees in the immediate Meadows area, there is bound to be a few due for natural removal each year. With last year (and I believe immediately preceding years) being relatively windless, there was a crop of end of life trees ready for the first storm.
Meanwhile enjoy the picture of Raphael and note the markings on the cross section showing some of the 121 years marked.
