Following the inspection and assessment by the Shire back in March, three of our larger trees had to be felled and their stumps ground into mulch The large radiata pine outside Hurst has left a hole in the streetscape but the Swamp Gum outside Wimborne and the Wattle in Edna Walling Lane much less so.

Replenishment of the community mulch pile and plenty of firewood for the village... once a few of us chainsaw it up and split it. Could take a while to clean up Devon Cottage's drive!
An army of rakers to clear the road and gutter of autumn leaves today. Potholes filled with the gravel from the gutter too and all along the roadside was weeded. Judicial pruning to keep roadside visibility. It looks great - amazing what a couple of week's of wet weather can do to bring it all back after the dry summer and early autumn! Finished up with morning tea in the warm sunshine at The Barn.
