Some time ago a lady from a local nature conservation agency (naturskyddsföreningen) came by to make an inventory of the valuable trees in our village. She was especially pleased with the old lime trees (lind) in our garden along the road. In the past these trees were used for hamling, the regular removal of young branches to provide food for the livestock. Trees like these are valuable historical elements of the local landscape. Therefor the authorities are helping landowners to keep them in good health. Read more on the lime and other trees in our garden.
