Renovating old trees should be done over a number of years. If you cut too much off at once, it will send up a lot of non fruiting watershoots.
Grandads shed was full of tools and spanners. We weren't allowed in. After he died it took months to sort out. Unfortunately most of the contents seem to have ended up in my dads garage. Anyone one want a set of imperial sized spanners suitable for buses or tanks?
If you clip it early, it makes new growth which then falls in autumn. We always cut the beech in August.
Gorgeous colour david.K.
