Wed 7th March 2018 - Morton Marsh, Sandown. GG # 725.

Terry's Photographs.

Gentlemen (and ladies!) please select your tree...!

Branching out..???

Dealing with the off-cuts.

We huffed and we puffed to get the fire away.

Nearly finished.

Now, that's what you call a "HAIRCUT"!

It was only a couple of weeks ago that we visited this "new" site but there was still plenty for us to be getting on with. Once again, the instructions were very simple "See those willow trees and that fencing over there? Take them all out!" With half the team removing barbed wire and fence posts the others set about reducing some rather tall willow trees to mere stumps. Why do we leave the stumps so high? It is so they can be treated before being finally chopped off at ground level. All the cut material was neatly  piled ready for burning at a later date. We did eventually get a bonfire away which enabled us to dispose of a huge clump of gorse. As can be seen from Terry's excellent photographs, we had some blue sky and a reasonable temperature - a far cry from last Wednesday when The Beast from the East first hit the Island!

Many thanks to Terry for taking the photographs this week.
