Sad to see this go – a local landmark coming down in Worton due to decay.
The decay, which you can see in the photo, was detected in the base of this 100 ft Cedar of Lebanon. Using the Picus Sonic Tomograph, the decay was clear.
This was the last one of six that were there before the houses were built on Cedar Close; now, perhaps Cedar-less Close!
The trunk was taken down to the West Country for wood carving into something quite unique. Howard & Sons undertook the haulage
A replacement tree has been planted.
And for the case study using the Picus Sonic Tomograph, please see here
And our post in November 2022 will tell you about its wonderful transformation into this tabletop.
