Traditional heavy horses working to remove trees at RHS Rosemoor
IF YOU go to RHS Rosemoor today there's a chance you might see traditional heavy horses removing the last of 100 spruce trees from the Lower Woodland area
RHS Garden Rosemoor has enlisted the help of Ben May from Forest Craft and his team – Tom and Joey (the horses) – to remove the trees which have been felled by the Rosemoor garden team.
The trees died due to a Spruce Beetle attack and needed to be removed as delicately as possible so not to disturb the important habitat underneath. Tom and Joey have been seen effortlessly towing the enormous tree trunks, weighing up to half a ton each and up to 30ft in length, up through the stumps of Lower Woodland Walk.
A special viewing area has been screened off so visitors to the garden can watch the heavy horses in safety.
