Church yew trees cut back

Yews cut P1010885

The Yew trees in the churchyard have been cut back as planned which has opened up a great deal of light and a better view of the church. Green shoots are already appearing. The half completed metal framework is shown here to indicate the size the finished pyramids when the growth returns fully.

Thanks to Bayes Trees, who have carried out the tree pruning and to the multi- skilled JRA Woodworking for the steel frames currently under construction, and to John Clayton for coming up with the idea and advising. David Bayes will be back in a week or so to prune and remove other overgrown tree growth in the churchyard which will further open up the view of the church, improve security and hopefully reduce the potential autumn leaf fall which has been overwhelming this year.
