TOUCHING THE SEASONS: MEASEL TREE
     
         
               
  Rowan tree on Blackdown Common. Branches removed, re-used to plug holes, created in a series of spiralled holes from base of tree to a height of two metres. The tree will heal the plugged holes and create a weald in each one. As the tree grows so the bark will attain a curious spiralling bark.The tree was due to be felled as part of the felling programme on the Blackdown Hills.
