A Conversation for The Tree Cathedral, Whipsnade

Conservation and lichens

Post 1


I walked up to the Tree Cathedral this morning. Some unusual maintenance and repair work has been done recently to the fencing at the back of the car park. Instead of replacing the wooden posts and rails, a second set has been added, right next to the originals. A notice fixed to the repaired area says that as part of the conservation study it was found that no less than 34 different lichens are growing on the fencing, of which 3 are not known to exist anywhere else in the county.

How amazing. I like lichen, and try to spot different types.

Thank you Maestro smiley - smiley
