Leaning trees – work in progress

On our farming neighbour’s land there were several leaning and collapsing small trees in a small copse area, some over the road, others over our hedge. He was happy for us to work to remove them. Having started on it we found that they were blackthorn trees.  One seemed to be a roost for an owl, so I left it to see if it comes back.

A friend is interested in the heartwood – he says it’s a nice colour – up to 20cm diameter.
