Tree Felling - March 2015

A 'Laylandii' conifer is being felled due to its relative size and location. The area in which it sits will be replanted to fit in with the current scheme, so it is likely a hedgerow will continue along the fenceline.

This year we have planted 6 trees in Baxter gardens, and will look at increasing this number as we start to lose trees due to health and safety, and ill health in trees. This will include a more suitable species to replace the conifer we are felling.

Consultation was to properties that were affected by the works, and the local friends group were also informed.

We always look to replace trees with suitable species, and in some cases plant more trees than we have taken out.

If you have any further queries please let us know.
