Head ranger on the Trelissick Estate, Neil Stevenson, said:
'We lost a lot of trees, including several veterans in the park and woodland.
‘Turkey and Holm oak are large, impressive trees, but the timber quality is very poor. We tend to leave these oaks within the woodlands where the greatest benefit can be gained by allowing them to rot and provide a wildlife habitat for many species.
‘Sessile oak, on the other hand, can produce fantastic timber which is used in the boat building yards around the Fal.
‘Lime wood is a fabulous timber for carving. We try to retain as much wood from parkland trees as possible on-site as the conservation value is our top priority, but we are able to take out portions of the lime which are sold to local wood turners and carvers.’
