Felling by the Railway Line

20190302 Ash by Railway Line1

Just to let people know that we will be felling four mature Ash trees by the Cinder Path at some point in the coming week while the railway is closed. All of these trees showed signs of Ash Dieback when we surveyed them last summer and are likely to fall or shed branches soon, although we do not know when. While they are some distance from the railway line, we think they may pose a small risk. We are acting in co-ordination with The Woodland Trust at Butchers Wood and with Network Rail. We will be on the Cinder Path while felling is in progress and we will ask walkers to wait a few moments to ensure everyone’s safety.
