The last of the established fruit trees in the orchard had the tree guard fitted around it last week, finally completing this project, which now looks absolutely outstanding.
This tree guard was relatively easy to install around the tree with respect to missing the root growth, however, due to the shape of the main stem of the tree the guard had to be modified quite extensively by removing the top two ring members on just one of the sections of the tree guard!
We have been supported by funding from Copella and it is this has enabled much of the work to take place. You can find out more about Charlecote’s parkland by joining a park walk with one of our volunteers. We try to offer these most days that we’re open and they are free of charge.
