Mighty Oak

On July 30, a strange weather phenomenon occurred here in Norwich, likely a micro burst.  Unfortunately, the beautiful and majestic Oak that had graced the property for well over 200 years was a victim.  She lost a major limb.

Our Arborist checked her out and shared that any time a tree loses 1/3 of their limbs, the tree is compromised.  We agreed to try to save her.  We added supports for the remaining limbs protecting her the best that we could.

We expanded the veranda because she provided such amazing shade and shelter from the Summer sun.  She has given all who have lived and visited joy and comfort.  Today, we have to protect her.

We are so fortunate that we were able to trim the limb and secure the others.  She is still standing today and hopefully, for another 200+ years.
