Tree News.



Thanks to all for the support. We may be able to sort this out!

I have now received the following reply from Mike Pears, of Leicester City Council which is self explanatory.

Dear Mr Savage,  thanks for your email, I have asked our Trees and Woodlands Team to clarify the reasons for removal of the tree and they have replied as follows:

"Both trees were removed on the grounds of severe basal decay, leading to inner and deep cavities, all caused by low level (car height) vehicle damage over several years. These cavities were formed in an almost honeycomb pattern which meant that if slightly pushed in the wrong way then the remaining tissue could buckle/collapse.  The crowns were both at a stage where further pruning to keep them from causing building damage was not going to be possible without unreasonably short maintenance periods."

Removal of the tree and grinding out of the stump has to be done when a replacement tree is to be planted so the only additional cost is capping off the tree pit to maintain a safe surface within the footway.

I am submitting a bid to the Castle Ward Community Meeting to try to secure funding for replacing six trees within the ward including the two on Cradock Road. This bid should be discussed at the next meeting on 22nd March.

Regards
Mike


It seems that we must now lobby our local council members to give funding a chance of approval to replace our trees, or R.O.T. for short!

I shall send an email to expressing our feelings and, if I can find out where it is, may attend the meeting on 22nd March.

It would be very helpful if anyone else reading this could also lobby our local councillors. The picture illustrate how bare it looks without our trees.

Thanks.
