BCC Tree Officer noted 5 trees that were moribund or dead earlier this summer.
These have all been felled. Four trees were on the Maurice Road boundary. The two near St Bart’s church were Prunus padus, Bird cherries; those lower down were unspecified cherries (This photo is one of them). The leaning tree in the childen’s play area has also been felled; that was listed as a rowan, Sorbus aucuparia.
In due course we may be able to plant some new trees to replace these, not necessarily, but not necessarily not, in similar locations.

Comment by Paul Reddish on Saturday

I was sorry to see the trees disappear from the Maurice Rd edge of the park. Are there any plans to replace them. It's a shame to lose 4 flowering trees. I'm sure the insects would agree. In springtime each year, litle children had lots of fun shaking down pink snow from what I took as Japanese flowering cherries.

A separate quesion. Do you know why the tree surgeons left 1 metre high stumps?

Final question. Is there any plan to clear out some of the vegetation from the pond? Natural progression,I know, but soon there will be no open water.

Park looks beautiful, even in the drizzle today. I feel priveleged to live near it.

Best wishes,
