High winds bring down trees

The high winds from Storm Gareth have brought down trees near the boundary of Davies Field on the Golden Hill site.

This image shows a tree that has fallen and threatens to crush a hut on the Horfield Organic Community Orchard located at the top end of Davies Field at Golden Hill.  There a number of ailing elm trees that are liable to fall and this recent storm has brought one down.

Although the trees are close to the allotment boundary, they are not actually the responsibility of the Allotment Association as they appear to be on Council land. The Association is consulting with our tree surgeon about how to proceed on this and other trees.
