|The 2014 rescue.|
|Totally obscured oak.|
In 2014 an oak tree was rescued from its neighbouring thugs. Fast growing Leylandii conifers had practically starved the oak tree of all light on one side and it was leaning desperately searching for more light. The side adjacent to the conifers was bare of branches and when the conifers were topped, the poor old oak did look a one sided, sad and spindly specimen. Today, as the sun was attempting to show itself, I couldn't help but notice the improvement. Five years on, the little oak now has branches on both sides albeit a tad short on the conifer side. Oaks are so slow growing, they need extra care not less!
