Damage to Quercus hybrid

Filed under: Cornus walterii,Oak Paddock,Quercus,Quercus laurifolia x incana — Dick Bos @ 9:08 pm

Today we did a lot of work on cleaning the damage that occurred last week to a Quercus laurifolia x incana 1970 027 in the Oak Paddock (close to the patch of bamboo in the gully).
In a little storm of last weekend it got terribly damaged.

I think we’d best take it down more or less completely, and try to let it regrow from a 4 meter stem or so.

Next to it is a very nice Cornus walterii. The leaves are red brown.

There is another specimen of C. walterii in the Ridge paddock, which does not have these red brown leaves!
