Shaftesbury Place tree down

CIMG4365Just got the photos from Phillipa of the Rowan tree which came down in the high winds two weeks ago.

CIMG4367We’ve been wondering why it came down. It was clear by the end of the summer that it was sickly in some way. The leaves went brown and shrivelled well before its twin on the opposite side of the station. I wondered whether it had suffered in this summer’s drought: the right side gets the full heat of the midday sun. But the tree didn’t uproot: the base seems to have snapped. It’s difficult to tell from the photos what was wrong, but we’re sad it’s gone.

Tree down and bike
