Beech Tree Downfall

The link below is to a video showing the felling of a mature beech tree in the grounds of Compton Verney. The tree previously had the crown branches removed to reduce weight on the stem, which was had been seriously weakened by the fungus Ganoderma adspersum.

The stump will be cleaned up and left in-situ to act as a visual reminder to the spot where this significant tree once stood – believed to be approaching 200 years old. A new beech tree has been planted on the edge of woodland nearby, amongst many other trees.
