Tree gets a trim for spring
5:00pm Friday 15th February 2013 in News
TREE surgeons at Harcourt Arboretum have been trimming and pruning the trees ready for the spring season.
Arborists Karl Lofthouse and Guy Horwood have cut back a large oak tree in the visitors’ car park at the Nuneham Courtenay attraction.
Mr Horwood said: “That particular tree was a fantastic old specimen that is in quite a prominent location in the middle of the car park, but it is slowly dying back.
“We have to make sure it is safe as possible because it’s such a lovely old tree and is a very valuable asset for the arboretum. It has got a massive habitat with an awful lot of insects, birds and bats that will use it.”
