Tree Work

All around Abingdon this winter there has been a lot of tree work done.

This is the reach of the Thames between Abingdon and Radley looking across towards the far bank

where trees have been cut back and piled high - like here near swift ditch.

These old branches are being carted away from near Radley Lakes to be burnt. A year or so back when the Lake was being prepared for destruction many of the trees were numbered and cut. Now the Lake has been saved, but without the trees to draw up water the Lake does seem more liable to flood.

And here round a private fishing lake beside Barton Fields, which has lost its private gate for now, big trees have been cut down and replaced by little trees.

The tree work has started in Albert Park too, quite a few trees have been dealt with so far and there are already less places for the dogs to hide in on walks!
