The Last Section

Last Monday the team planted the new Yew hedge that separates the orchard, but left an old piece of hedge in place. Having thought about it for a week it was decided to remove this piece and replace it with the remaining Yew from the original order of 100.

The lower branches were removed to allow better access to the trunks. One at a time, rope was then attached to the trunk and to the tractor grap which then pulled them out.

The old trees were taken to the chipping pile, and as with last week, a trench was then dug, leaf mould added, the young Yew planted and watered in.

99 young Yew have now been used to create this new hedge, 1 left, where are we going to use this?
