Storm Darwin hits Bayly Farm

Storm Darwin fells Spanish chestnut

Storm Darwin hits Bayly Farm, uprooting a dozen trees or so. But we are fortunate compared to many. 

The fallen tree above is the Spanish chestnut at the front of the house. The tree was perhaps best known to family and intrepid friends as destination of the farm’s zip-wire experience. The  “death-slide” ran for a number of years from a copper beech, which fortunately still stands, to the now fallen chestnut, some 40 metres away.

Storm Darwin debris at weir on Nenagh River at Bayly Farm

And even the swollen waters of the Nenagh River cannot prevent debris snagging at the weir at Bayly Farm.

The mature beech below was clearly ready to fall, although Storm Darwin sadly hastened its demise.

This beech needed more than a bit of chain-sawing!
