Barber Chair Oak

 

 

 

Basal decay had caused this Oak to ‘barber chair’, with the crown caught up in the trees on the other side of the road.

You can see the telephone cables stretched down with the stem on top of them.

Luckily there were good anchor points for both a climber and for use as a rigging point in two adjacent trees. You can see one of these rigging ropes to the right hand side of the picture.
