Mast Trees


We’ve got a book called ‘Giants in the Land’, which is about the trees of New England that were used for masts for English ships up until independence in the US. We went for a walk in one of our local woods and were thinking of the mast trees as we looked up at the pines growing there. They aren’t quite as big as the pines in New England used to be, but it was great to look up at them and good fun to throw pine cones into the pool there.
