A Week on the Estate: Paul’s Drone, Andy’s Oaks & Samuel’s Cot
This week, we continued to plan for a sustainable future while learning more about our legacy.
Estate Manager Paul Barnes wanted a better overview of the estate than you can get at 5’8” tall. He’s done his drone training and become a virtual pilot. Operating above the tree canopy, Paul’s drone will showcase the beauty of the landscape and prove invaluable in its management.
Andy Hope and his team from Hope Ground & Tree Care worked hard this week to plant an impressive total of 2,500 English oak trees in three large, cleared areas on the estate. Each of Andy’s team planted 278 trees per day. They certainly earned their pay and their dinner.
