Pont ar Daf Ash tree reduction

Pont ar Daf ash tree after canopy reduction.

We’ve done some reduction work on the ash tree at Pont-ar-Daf today.

With all the larch removed as part of the phytophthora ramorum control, it was looking a bit exposed to the wind.

Reducing the crown size will hopefully make it a bit less sail like and prevent it from being blown over.

In the spring it will hopefully send out lots of new growth, to form a new, tighter, canopy.
