How old is our Beech Tree?
A while ago a beech tree blew over across the footpath on the way up to Linch Down. And a little while later someone came along and kindly chopped it up with a big saw!
So we decided to count the rings, to work out how old the tree was. We think it was planted at around the end of the First World War, which means it was about 90–100 years old when it toppled over.
