Before anyone gets over excited and bends my ear about tree preservation – let me just put the record straight and say that I’m referring to 3 – already dead – trees in my garden.
How do I know that they’re beyond repair, well quite simply they’ve not grown or blossomed in over 2 and a half years – which for a plum and apple tree is not good (I’m sure you’ll agree). So armed with my trusty garden spade and tree clipper I pruned the trees back and dug them up. They are now on their way to the garden recycling depot for use as compost and bark.
On the bright side, we now have a bigger ‘play area’ in the garden and DDWT Junior can no longer use the trees as make believe catapults!
