walking on the dark side

I’ve been spending some time over in our chestnut woodland, mostly clearing the path.

There are some really really old chestnuts the trunks of which are still standing and acting as grandparent trees

Our concern is that there are a lot of dying pines standing in our woodland and above that will fall in the next year or two, rick doesn’t have time to fell them at the moment and we’ll have to let nature takes it course. It’s a very beautiful, cool and dark space, a pleasant reprieve from the blistering heat on the rest of the farm
