Smelly Oak Park

In a bid to deter deer from damaging trees in the park we have treated a number of the damaged trees with a combination of clove oil, almond extract, pepper dust and flowers of sulphur - quite a smelly combination. Lets hope it works. Treated trees can be identified by the pale yellow deposit on their bark.
