A Magnificent Beech Tree

A beautiful Beech tree with a trunk circumference of around 20 ft. As we approached the tree, we had no idea of it's size until stood next to it. Hubby could have wrapped around it twice and there would still be room for a little one. :D

We too have a fantastic beech tree in our field. The amount of wildlife they each support as well as being beautiful!

You are very lucky! Beech trees are one of my favourite trees. When one stands alone it grows in the most beautiful way, the shape is almost round. We have two small beech trees which we would one day like to plant somewhere. I'm not sure if we would plant them in a garden, unless it was huge! But we have many trees which we could donate to a planting scheme and return to see how they have done in a few years time, which would be nice.

We have even thought of buying a small piece of woodland one day, just to have as a nature spot for wildlife, a garden away from garden so to speak. If we can’t live in woodland, we will bring Mr and Mrs will to woodland!

That's a lovely tree Will. Are you tree huggers? You're welcome to plant some trees on our plot, there's plenty of room. :)
Keep calm and carry on.

We do like trees, I have been known to hug one or more of them. We could plant a nice Oak tree on your plot, it is sat in a pot looking...potty! :lol:

Never mind kids. I bet you would climb a big tree, and enjoy it more than most kids would. :wink: I know if we had a huge garden with huge trees, I wouldn't be able to resist the urge!

:lol:

I would too! Imagine us free falling whilst running in thin air off of our swing! :lol: Sausages flying everywhere... :wink:

Hubby came in from the garden today with a spider on his trouser leg, and I screamed "slay the beast!" He waited so long!! It almost got to the bottom of his trouser leg and we know where it could have ended up!!!! I would have told him off if he had allowed it to disappear up there and he would have literally grown cobwebs...because I wouldn't trust that it had gone. :evil: :lol:
