It’s been a bit windy …

We’d like to say that following reports of a tree down and blocking section 11, a man with a saw was rapidly dispatched for a spot of urgent pruning work. However, as the team had been away pedaling around a few of the 7Stanes, the job did languish for a few days. You can never be sure what you’ll find in such circumstances, as the term ‘blocking’ means different things to different people. On this occasion, as the first picture shows, there were actually a couple of trees involved, but you should now have suitable freedom of passage.

Further back down the trail by the first section of boardwalk, one limb of a pair had split from the main trunk of another tree, about 4 metres up. It landed very conveniently by the side of the trail – but only just. Anyone around when that one had come down might have needed a new helmet and underpants!
