Photographer's Note

Sherwood Forest. This is a follow up to my posting 'The Major Oak' which showed the tree without leaves.
I thought I ought to show you another view of the tree but from a slightly different POV.
As you can see there is a fence which prevents the general public from getting too close.The rangers are trying hard to preserve the tree,which means keeping people at a distance, as too many feet compound the soil and prevents the tree from gaining the moisture that it needs to stay alive.Plus there are some very heavy boughs,which are supported by poles, and could prove dangerous if people got too close.

If you want further information about the Major Oak,please refer to my earlier post.

I included the people to help you get an idea of scale.
