The Felling of a Riverside Beech Tree

It is very sad to see a tree which is several hundred years old and located in such a prominent position felled but this riverside Beech tree in the grounds of the Hope & Anchor had to go due to a fungal disease. The tree had been dead for a number of years and was a danger to the public. It was finally taken down on 13th June by Joe Brandt, Andy Radnor, Jack Allen and Darren Phillips of Acer Tree Services.

In the bottom photograph, taken last year, fungi can be seen at the base of the Beech.

Ross-on-Wye Weather Station Readings

Ross-on-Wye Weather Station is located by the tennis courts and bowling green at 'Crossfields' and is one of the important stations around the country which regularly sends data to the Meteorological Office. This is why Ross-on-Wye is sometimes mentioned on the BBC weather reports. It is currently still a manually monitored station and readings are taken twice per day by husband and wife team, June and Rex Swallow.
