Beech fell AB

Uncategorized 3 Comments Posted on

This 200 year old Beech was infected with the decay fungus ‘Kretschmaria Deusta’, which causes stems to fracture. This has happened to a number of such trees on the Essex Wildlife Trust Reserve this tree stood in. Due to the proximity of a public footpath, it was decided this tree would have to go. You can see the stain caused by the fungal infection in the base of the trunk after the fell.
