She is over 160 years old and over 200 feet high.
For perspective, the brick wall is eight feet high.
Behind the wall in the lower left you can catch a glimpse of a house with a red chimney.
Alas, Maid Marion is ailing.
Decades ago tree wisdom had the hollows cemented and blocked up.
Not a good idea - the moisture can do more damage than good.
Rot is not the cause of her ailment.
She has been seen by two tree surgeons, and the news is not good.
Maid Marion is weak and cannot be healed.
Though she has had several surgeries over the years.
Another arborist has been called in to see if there is anything to do for her.
If no Robin Hood appears, Maid Marion is doomed.
She will come down.
We will grieve her loss.
We do love our trees.
