Historic Oak Avenue Restoration
Practicality Brown Ltd were proud to have been chosen as the specialist contractor to carry out tree transplanting of local provenance Oaks as part of a major restoration project at Wentworth Castle, South Yorkshire.
We transplanted 60 large Quercus robur, or Common Oak (each up to 80cm girth or trunk circumference measurement) from other areas of the estate. The aim was to recreate the 18th Century Great South Oak Avenue at the Castle and was complemented with a further 50 English provenance stock that we sourced and planted and forms part of the general Restoration works at the Grade one listed mansion. All oaks have re-established well and the project has been a great success.
