Work continued to salvage the collapsed oak tree at Hatfield Forest today. With little free time before starting my shift I visited to see what progress the tree surgeons had made since yesterday. A lot of bulk had been removed from what remains of the tree and the chaps were hard at work, figuring out how to reach the uppermost branches.
Moving the mobile scissor lift to a different spot gave them the necessary access without getting caught up in the tree’s crown. With this sorted they set about thinning things out, at which point I bade them farewell and headed off to my own work.
