Subject: [rurallife] Update on trees

A large team of woodyard volunteers turned up this morning and set to work.

Within minutes the threat to the caravan was removed, Tweedsmuir was reopened 
and the railway line cleared.

However on closer inspection of the area behind the woodyard a large number of 
unsafe trees were discovered including one threatening to fall through the 
centre of the living van.

As a result the woodland walk will remain closed until a climber can deal with 
these hung up trees.

One piece of good news is that it looks likely that we will be able to save the 
Wellingtonia subject to a closer inspection by the climber.

A big thank you to all those that turned up this morning to start clearing the 
devastation, you have saved us a lot of money though raising more funds to 
continue caring for the arboretum must now be a priority.
