Following a recent survey of all council owned ash trees a number of trees were identified as requiring immediate removal, the attached map shows the location of all the ash that were picked up on the survey in this area, the first tranche of works will include the removal of T0176 & 178, in addition to a single ash to the north of the play area which stands on maintained land; it is expected that this work will be undertaken within the next 4-6 weeks.
The trees identified by the green circles will be resurveyed next year, statistically, it’s unlikely that they will all survive however, they will all be managed appropriately as it’s hoped some might offer some resilience and perhaps provide us with a seed bank.
