Iron eating trees

Have you spotted this ironivorous¬†phenomenon anywhere? This tree is so hungry that it is eating the metal bit of an old bill hook. I wonder what it did with the owner……One day this metal will be completely engulfed by the tree and then woe¬†betide the chainsaw operator that tries to cut it down. A lovely bit of tree archaeology like the bicycle eating tree in the Trossachs http://www.forestry.gov.uk/forestry/INFD-6U8J98

Join the Limewoods Working Group

Jill and Ted joined in for a day with the newly formed Limewood Working Group for a visit to Shrawley Wood in Worcestershire. Here they all are looking at a massive old lime stool. What else! Interested in what they do? Then post us a message.

What's in clover?

The Knepp free range Tamworth pigs of course. Look how they love the clover especially the flower heads.
