Ye Olde Plum tree has fallen down

Our old victoria plum tree has finally crashed to the ground, and killed my greenhouse!

It’s of no surprise, the crop of plums has been failing over the last six years, it’s estimated to be 200-250 years old! It was left over from the orchard before the house was built in the 1860s!

but left in its shadow are two smaller trees, that may fruit.

I do not have a chainsaw, and the trunk is too large for me to cut by electric saw or bow saw, so I’ve asked my neighbour to pop round with this chainsaw, to cut up into logs. (I don’t have a chainsaw yet!)
