This Autumn David Moore has been conducting a detailed tree survey for MCT (as promised in our Management Plan). We thought site users might be interested in looking at some of the resulting photographs, so below we have illustrated trees on the Public Open Space North of Nelsons Lane in alphabetical order for user convenience.
