It was with some sadness that two old papple trees were taken down on 25th May. Unfortunately their fruit has dropped on the shed roof of House D for a long time causing a lot of disturbance to the residents in that house and to some of the neighbours as well.

Scion wood was collected so the papple can be grafted onto more manageable sized trees in a good location
To prevent the tree falling the wrong way
The first tree was relatively easy to take down
