About Tree guards at Braithwaite HallHelp to plant another generation of ancient trees at Braithwaite Hall.
Helps us to build tree guards at Braithwaite Hall so we can plant another generation of open-grown trees in the spectacular Yorkshire Dales. Using wooden posts, rails and wire we will construct robust guards and plant trees on this Dales farm, where large open-grown trees are a feature of the landscape.
