This gallery of pictures shows a comparison between appearances of the tree farm in the early period in 1992/3 and in more recent times in mid 1999. Comprising mainly pictures, it loads quite slowly (about 6-7 minutes the first time I tried it), so please be patient. I hope you think it is worth it <g> . . .
