Brockwood’s Tulip Tree Came Down

On an overcast and cold day at Brockwood the tulip tree which has graced the South Lawn for around a century was taken down. Having had a fungal disease for quite some time it had recently been declared unsafe. The first photo below shows the tree at its peak covered in foliage; the large leaves used to make a distinctive murmuring sound in the breeze prompting Krishnaji, who used to watch the tree from his bedroom window, to describe a conversation he had with it. The photo looking towards the main house includes to the right the new small Tulip tree in the foreground, planted to replace the old one. (Photos by Bill Taylor and Mark Apted)
