Tree felled on boundary of Marshlands Tree Garden

Paul Morris, the Facilities Manager felling the tree.

Potentially dangerous tree felled on boundary of Marshlands Tree Garden!

Sadly the recent high winds had caused a Field Maple tree on the boundary of the Marshlands Tree Garden to lean at an angle. The tree was in danger of falling onto the footpath running alongside the boundary.

Due to physical weight of the tree, righting it was not an option, so the decision was taken to fell the tree.

The work was carried out by Paul our Facilities Manager, assisted by volunteers from the Environment Committee.

The tree has been felled at fence height, and hopefully the tree may send out new growth in the Spring.
