Oak number 5526

Message from Ian Bushell.

Sad to report that Oak number 5526, dubbed Stoat Oak, in the hedge line between Corn and Sleeper Fields has suffered a two limb loss – the large upper branch taking out the lower one on its descent.  The fallen branch is safe and not impinging on the hard path.

No idea why; admitted it is in full leaf and thus heavy but there has been no wind or rain in the last couple of days. This tree lost a limb about the same place about 10 years ago. Don’t think there have been any other losses in the park this summer.

    1. It IS strange; the weather has been so calm and dry. Perhaps there is some kind of rot in the branch and our Tree Officer Rich Murphy will be able to tell us what happened.
