Planting of New Trees

 

You may have noticed a lot of work being done over the last few months with the trees up at Eaton Lands.  Sadly, a number of trees have had to be felled due to Ash dieback, which is a chronic fungal disease of Ash trees.

In the first quarter of the year, as part of a programme of regeneration,  the Town Council purchased 45 tree saplings from the Woodland Trust – including 15 Oaks,  15 Hornbeams and 15 Wild Cherries – which are currently being held in a nursery bed by a member of the Civic Society.  It is intended that these saplings will be planted towards the end of this year.
