The Parish Council understand how much these trees are valued by both residents and visitors. We are keen to ensure they are properly maintained and continue to give pleasure to future generations.

We commissioned a report on them from Barnes & Associates who are independent arboricultural consultants.

We are implementing a five year plan to ensure the proper care of the trees. The plan  includes the felling of a small number of trees over the 5 year period together with a programme of replanting and judicious pruning of the remaining trees. See TREES 5 YEAR PROGRAMME

The Plan has now been approved by the District Council. The first three trees have now been felled and replanting will take place in the Autumn.
