Hi Ben

I need one in bright sunshine if possible and from the same angle (being picky).

Cheers

Hi David, nice picture and i remember the day. I showed you the tree because it was a great and unusual example. It realy was flat on the one side. Your visit was in 07 so the Ash had already been absent for 5 years or so. As one would expect small twigs ext had already taken advantage of the open and begun to move into the space, but of course this was at the extremity. My observation has been to look at the branches that extend up from the stem on the sides, and how they have moved to fill the gap. I no its bonkers but there you go, its there. At the moment its blowing a gail and chucking it down, would'nt normaly stop me from going out but at present I'm recovering from surgery so reluctant to brave the elimants. I think if I can make it into the atic I can take a side view. I'll try. On Tuesday, 18 December 2018, 11:46:41 GMT, David Lloyd-Jones <dlj@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.com> wrote:

Hi Ben

I have the picture that I took and I wonder if you can take another now to
compare them.

Given what you have just mentioned, I would really like to see a shot
looking up the trunk at the morphed branches.

My interest when I came down was the section taken through the canopy as it
lends itself to diagramatic interpretation but you just added loads of
interest.

The attached was the tree in 2007.

Did you remove the leader at approx 25' or was that due to a natural
occurrence?

Cheers, David

Hi David, yes tree and I still here. It continues to amaze, been observing
it for 15 years and the major limbs continue there migration around the
stem.
Short story I moved to this property about 15 years ago, on a small rise
there was a Red Oak and an Ash tree. Bothe about 45-50 foot tall and growing
perhaps fifiteen feet apart at the base. I had a concern that the Ash
showing sign of decay could fall in the wind onto the car parking. So I
felled it for fire wood. The two trees had grown so close together that the
Oak left behind realy did have a very clearly defined half canopy. All the
weight to one side and considerable. I decided to leave it for observation
and remove non of it. I would have expected that some of the branch wood to
have in time extended into the opening left buy the Ash. what I did not
expect was that the major limbs those that come directly for the stem and
perhaps 18 inches in diamiter to actualy move at the point of attachment
around the tree into the opening. To be clear, they did not bend they have
moved like the hands on a clock.
