In compliance with our Higher Level Stewardship agreement at Orchid Glade, Paul Berry has removed most of the willows that were shading the pond, and sucking moisture from the surrounding soil.
We decided to keep two straight, well grown willows for their landscape value and another already crazy multi-topped tree has been trimmed to become a traditional pollard. We also left a couple of stumps by the pond, potential for a living seat.  The brash was windrowed, and will make good habitat.
Thanks, Paul, for a good job.
