We passed many fallen trees and there was one big Ash which had lost 2 out of about 4 lower branches. Big branches well over a foot in diameter.
The trunk was anywhere between 7-8 feet in diameter.
We passed under a big branch which was about 24” dia at the trunk. It stretched out over the Greenway for around 30 feet. I thought at the time that looks dodgy.
Here is a photo of it on Thursday. The council has said that it’s going to be a week before the Greenway is open again. The whole tree has fallen.
Having just dropped an 18” Tree yesterday I know what work is involved to cut and log up to clear.
The council will have the benefit of heavy equipment, but still a huge job.
