Walking through large parks of significant age and size usually means that you’re going to come across some old trees. Sometimes, these old trees will form an orderly pattern that is indicative of an old field hedgerow or boundary. This seems to be the case in the below images, which were taken in the same park as my post yesterday on the sycamore monolith with Kretzschmaria deusta. Old trees like this can tell a tale therefore, not only of their past management, but of the situation they were once in. Assess the landscape and draw conclusions from what you see – the signs are there.
