Staple Edge

Grid Ref SO 6362 0926

A large area at Staple Edge had been re-planted with broad leaf trees about 6 years ago. It was now time to remove the tree guards. The area also has high deer fencing around it so the young trees have a good chance of growing.

 

 

There must have been up to a hundred trees guards which are held in place by wooden stakes.

Plastic ties are cut by the team (and removed from the scene) to separate the tree guards from the stakes.
