Clearing up


Back to Roberts Park - and the huge tree that had fallen into the river (see HERE) has been (mostly) cleared up, with just a few twiggy branches remaining in the water. I suppose they'll get swept downstream in time. I happened to be walking past and I saw the men working, sawing the trunk into manageable pieces and shredding some of it into wood chips. They must somehow have pulled the tree back onto the land. What a job! It has all left rather a scar on the bank and in the woodland, but no doubt Mother Nature will step in to regenerate it all.

  1. Just imagine if that whole tree were to have been carried downstream in the winter floods and got jammed up under Leeds City Station......your men did a good job.

  2. A year from now that space will be filled with growth of some kind.

  4. The wood scraps will make nice homes for bugs that will be bird food.

  5. Banks of rivers need those trees, and sometimes they fall. Hope the bank can continue to be strong and new trees will grow soon.
