Hanging plaques are gradually replacing tree labels on stumps

Originally, when our trees were small seedlings, our plaques had to be attached to stumps in the ground.

Now, after more than ten years, many of the the stumps have rotted, so we are gradually removing them and supplying new plaques which can be hung on the actual trees whose girth is now sufficient to make this possible without damaging the tree. Attaching the plaques to mature trees protects them from damage from tractors and strimmers.

We are continually trying to improve the lasting quality of the plaques we provide, without incurring too much additional cost.
The oval ones we now use were agreed by our committee two years ago, and we replace damaged ones as necessary.
