A tight squeeze

Going through the tree

It’s a scene many will have come across whilst walking. You’re merrily walking along, casually admiring the view, then all of a sudden you notice there’s something blocking the path. Something substantial.

Yes, a tree has fallen. It’s a big one too. What do you do? Go round? That could take a while – it is a big tree after all. Try and clamber over it?

Sometimes you just can’t clamber over them. We came to this tree on the Glyndŵr’s Way which had fallen down in a storm. It posed a particular problem due to its awkward size, and the fact it was on a muddy slope. Going through the middle in an undignified fashion really was the only way.
