I was clearing up some of my trees yesterday in preparation for Winter. This Beech was on my list for putting into the Poly Tunnel. This tree is 63 years old. Forestry records 🙂 This is it with the leaves still clinging on.
And this it after Stan and I did a little plucking. I always like to remove the leaves on my Beech over the Winter. This way I can enjoy the branch structure and it leaves fewer places for little beasties to hide.
