Unfortunately we have had to fell several of our trees. They were all rotten and there was a possibility of them coming down on their own accord. They have let a lot more light into the property, but during the winter months the garden does look a bit sorry for itself, but we are doing a tree/bush buying shopping trip soon, and hope to get these planted, to fill the voids.
