Ancient Tree Hunt in the UK

Posted by on Nov 22, 2013 in Blog | Comments Off on Ancient Tree Hunt in the UK

The other day I stumbled across The Ancient Tree Hunt, an impressive project in the UK dedicated to finding, documenting and protecting significant trees. Having spent some time a decade or two ago wandering around Hyde Park, i was curious whether they had pictures of an amazing Weeping Beech I found there. A few clicks around the park and lo and behold, there it was! Read more about this tree HERE, or enjoy exploring their impressive website. Now, I do know that there was a similar project in New Brunswick, on a much more modest scale mind...

Boultenhouse House

Boultenhouse House

Recently we spend a day volunteering for the Tantramar Heritage Trust. Their museum at Boultenhouse House on Queen’s Road in Sackville was beginning to be lost behind the two enormous yews planted at the front corners of the building. Yews are an unusual evergreen in the sense that when branches http://cialis-canada-pharma.com/how-to-use-cialis.html are cut back hard they will sprout new greenery. This characteristic made serious renovation of these two yews possible. They’re a little thin now, but in a year or so will be full and...

Mulching Hither and Yon

  We’ve been donating wood chips for mulching gardens and paths at the Sackville Community Garden for several years now. This amazingly successful project had brought together people with an interest in growing food and flowers. Many are students or renters who don’t have access to their own plot of land. Others just enjoy the social aspect of gardening together with like-minded enthusiasts who can share seeds, produce, ideas and experience.We’re happy to be able to contribute in a small way to this hands-on example of...

So you want to be a climber?

So you want to be a climber?

Brendan Allison has been our lead ground worker since early Spring – now it’s time to go aloft! There’s been a few practice and education sessions to get ready, but today was the first day of production climbing. And oh what a day! The rule of thumb is to “go low and slow” honing new skills in a safe manner. Today’s task was low for sure, about 15 feet, but not easy climbing by any means. A row of Jack Pine had grown to obstruct the owners’ view of the lake. The way I look at it, pruning thirty 15 ft...

Art or Protest, or Protest Art?

Last week I blogged about the loss of valuable trees in Sackville. A few days later an interesting thing appeared over the stumps of the missing trees. An object, or more accurately, an installation – alluding to what once was there. I’m fascinated by the thought and effort someone put into this statement. Does anyone know who it was? I’d love to hear them tell their story. (Since posting this query the artist has been found. Mount Allison fine arts student Melinda Musgrave mdmusgrave@mta.ca is behind the installation. I...

Sackville Losing Heritage Trees

Sackville Losing Heritage Trees

I’m certainly not the only person mourning the loss of a number of monumental trees cut down to build apartments next to the old Town Hall in the heart of Sackville. These trees might be replaceable – but certainly not in our lifetimes. In the decade I’ve been working locally, innumerable mature trees have been lost to development, sewer and sidewalk improvement, dutch elm disease and old age. As a community we need to find ways to be more diligent in protecting the mature trees we have, and we need to work for the future by...
