|'THE DAY THE TREE CAME DOWN!'
It was approx 200 years old and was felled on 29th September 2009, changing the look
of The Orangery for ever. The tree surgeons said it had become
diseased and unsafe. Many years ago cables had been attached high in the tree and had strangled the
trunk as it grew. The Monkey Puzzle Tree was a feature of
Beechfield. However, it will be replaced with a young new Monkey Puzzle in the near future.
