September 2011 – Tim Hills: Notes from an unknown source say that branches were lost in 1940 due to ice, and in 1959, 1974 and 1976 due to gales. Slow growth has been suggested for this tree because it grows on sandy soil in an area of low rainfall. There is ample evidence of the losses to this tree, and one side of its bole has gone completely, revealing internal stems now on the outside of the tree. There are two main areas of growth, both on the same side of the tree, thus giving it a lopsided appearance. Ivy has been cut through. The final photo shows what a problem it had become.
