A warm spring day to remove the last of the deer fencing around the old enclosure. This is to prevent the deer from getting tangled up in it as the fencing was quite a few years old and the young trees are big enough to cope with being nibbled! We also moved along to Ninewells to remove the tree guards from some well established Sweet Chestnut trees.



Such a strange find!

Deep in the woods we found this old rubber mask. It could be a relic from World War II but it could be a more modern mask.

The question is :- how did it get there? what was it used for? Why had it been dumped in the forest far away from the tracks?

Any answers?








On the left are the Dean Green Team enjoying the sunshine!

On the right is a giant Sweet Chestnut tree fallen over the track - we contacted 'a man with a chainsaw' and he was very prompt when coming to remove it!





Ninewells had a few large lorry tyres dumped in it (who does that?) which we brought up to the track to be removed.

The piles of old tree guards will also be removed.
