More storm damage


This majestic old fig is believed to be around 150yrs old according to my neighbour who has run cattle on this farm for over 50 yrs. Last week during non stop rain, the entire back half of the tree split away leaving barely half of the original form. It now lays dying on the ground, trampled by the cattle that once took shelter under it from the heat of the sun. Huge figs like this are splitting in half and dropping massive limbs all over our shire due to the relentless rain over the past weeks. Everything is waterlogged and roots are rotting by the minute, leaving these giants vulnerable, and without much hope of survival. Sad days for us….:(
