Sun 17th Sept 2017: more tree work at Quarry Bank

Seven of us were working in the woods at Quarry Bank, Styal, near Oxbow bridge, where there has been clearance of Larch trees.
We have also worked there earlier in the year. This time we were clearing the remaining lop and top from the Larch, felling and also clearing Holly and Sycamore growth.
We also cleared encroaching growth from either end of Oxbow bridge to enable sunlight to get down to the deck and perhaps dry it and stop the wooden deck from becoming slippery in wet weather.
The deck has also just been replaced as part of a renovation programme.
All unwanted wood was burned on quite a splendid bonfire.
