Trees on the Ashbridge Estate – farewell old friend and welcome to the little guy

After a very long life, the European copper beech tree near 54 Woodfield Road on the Ashbridge Estate is no more. It was chopped down in the last week or so, and replaced by a new arrival, which appears to be a tulip tree – please comment below to correct me if that’s wrong.

Ashbridge Estate copper beech tree died 2012, removed July 2012

On May 6, 2012 the copper beech was clearly gone. In early July it was gone for good, no trace remaining.


Welcome to the little guy – looks like a tulip tree has replaced the old beech.
