Tree cutting, March 2003

The trees surrounding the lake are very picturesque and provide a good buffer from the strong winds that whistle across the open fields, the days when the wind whipped up "white water" on the lake seem to be thankfully gone, but it was felt necessary to cut the tops of the trees back in order to ease the wind strain on them as we have had a couple blown over, and to allow enough wind through to satisfy our ever growing band of Yachters. On a previous occasion we have attempted to do the job ourselves but it proved just a step too far for the usual band of volunteers, so this time the cutting was done by contractors and to keep the cost down, we agreed to do the clearing up.



Spot the contractor.



Another trailer load of cuttings arrive for unloading.



Many hands make light work







Any excuse for a lie down
