Description

“Askekaller” were the ash trees that were used to harvest additional feed for the animals. This was the traditional method for cutting down ash trees in Asker. The trees were severely pruned, so that only stems of 2-3 metres remained. This was done every 1-2 years. The cuttings were used as additional feed for cows and sheep. This type of “askekaller” can be found at Tveiter farm at Semsvannet. Historians believe that the name Asker comes from “a place with many ash trees”.
