Tree Felling

Anyone who regularly passes by the Cathedral will have seen Eric and John hard at work in our grounds. Yesterday their duties included felling a tree outside the Cathedral entrance.

This is how it all looked before they got started. Unfortunately the smaller tree was too close to its neighbour and it was deemed necessary to chop it down.

Here Eric is at work with the saw; John is off camera, at the other end of a rope, making sure that it falls in the right direction!

Going... going... gone.

Visitors to the Cathedral will be able to see this tree in use in the Lady Chapel over the Christmas season, after which it will be sent to the city council's tree recycling scheme.
