Rhagatt Tree removal

During the winter storms a Willow which overhung the Dynamite pool split and fell across the river. Over two Fridays we have now removed the tree. On the first Friday we removed as much brash as possible taking advantage of the low water conditon to reach most of the branches. The second Friday saw Commander Bradshaw arrive with his tractor which has a winch on the back and he pulled the tree from the river. The photographs below show what we did with a small work party of Mervyn Williams, John Evans, John Fernee, Gary Scholes and Chris White.  Below is a short video of the final removal .
