A close shave on Thursday for two PMV’s and their occupants – a beech tree shed a branch laden with mast in the gusty wind on Duncombe Terrace. The branch dropped from a height of fifty feet landing just a few feet in front of the visitors! Luckily staff and volunteers were on hand to rescue the situation. Never a dull moment at Ashridge.

    It seems that the fall was due to squirrel damage. A long section of the branch had had it’s bark removed, and incipient decay had set in. The weakness was exploited by the windy conditions.
    Those pesky squirrels – look good, taste good, but do no good!
