East Keswick’s BIG trees

Inspired by Ian Rotherham’s talk on Ancient Woodlands (see next post) we have been measuring some of the village’s oldest trees. These will go into a national database at www.ancient-tree-hunt.org.uk/project/hunt. The village hosts many large and ancient trees, mainly Oak and Ash.

This veteran Ash near the green bridge down at the river has a circumference of 4.63m at shoulder height


Measuring the circumference of a massive Oak along the boundary of Ox Close wood. It measured 4.27m.
