Beautiful winter

This amazing bracket fungus is growing on this tree in Grove Wood. It's just the sort of beautiful sight that would be lost from Grove Wood if the landowner had his way and removed all of the so called 'dead, dying or dangerous trees'. This picture is a really good example of why a variety of trees of different ages and in different states are so important for wildlife. Let's hope Bristol City Council hurry up and turn it in to a nature reserve soon.

I completely agree. Unless a dead tree is likely to cause a (realistic as opposed to imagined) safety hazard then it should be left where it is. We really need the threat of chainsaws and other destructive activities to be removed from the woods once and for all and the only way to do that is for the land to be taken away from the current owners.
