This tree, although nothing special, is a bit of a favorite of mine and continues to develop nicely. The tree is laden with berries this year as I allowed more flowers to grow during the growing season.
A number of years ago the dead wood on the tree was suffering from rot and I treated it with copious amounts of wood hardener. This has weathered nicely and is still doing its job as the rot has been kept at bay. I am considering giving it another treatment in the near future as a
belt and braces precaution.
