It must surely rain soon. So it’s a good time to have a look in the tree guards to see firstly whether the little buggers are alive and secondly whether the weeds have grown in there with them. This here’s a good one. No room for weeds and definitely alive. I could have put up a shot of a tree guard with a 2 metre cobblers peg growing out of it, but prefer to be positive about the whole thing. On removing the cobblers peg, I found a small tree still alive at the bottom. After checking about 200 trees and weeding them, there are about 5 deaths. Not bad. I’m a happy Paddock Worker.
