Many thanks for the web addresses etc. Unfortunately the tree is very close to an equally ancient mixed hedgerow - Privet, Holly, Blackberry, Bay- almost everything bar the kitchen sink and all but the Privet self seeded. The other side (our neighbours) stands a very tall Silver Birch whose overhanging branches we cut to light the apple. Pipistrelle bats roost in the Birch. Do you know if we tell the local council we will get it protected from development?
Sorry to stray off the subject,
