To be broadcast on Wednesday 13th June at 8pm on BBC 2, the Tree Radar scan of the Major Oak at Sherwood Forest, with Sharon and Ian investigating what lies beneath one of the worlds oldest trees. Results, and the full SHA film of the day will be available soon on the website - more information on the machine at treeradaruk.com
Fourth time lucky At Sherwood(?) and an International Conference to speak at!
Another interesting Tree Radar job was undertaken for the National Trust at the beautiful location of Hatfield Forest yesterday, with Sharon and Ian meeting with Adrian Clarke, National Trust General Manager, and Henry Bexley, National Trust countryside manager, to observe the technology surveying one of the veteran oaks. Another great opportunity to establish actual root protection areas over the capped 15m limit that applies to construction, the sun shone all day long and it actually felt like spring was in the air. Matthew Sapsford was in attendance to learn about the technique and thoroughly enjoyed a day seeing what it was all about.
With thanks and great appreciation going to Adrian and Henry, the results are currently being analysed.
