NEW TREES IN THE VILLAGE
30th March 2010
You may have notice some new trees have today been planted on the Plaistow and on the boundary between Bull Meadow and the Playing Fields. These came from the Trees and Landscape Division of South Cambridgeshire District Council and was arranged by our Tree Warden.
The species planted on the Plaistow are:
Davidida involucrata or Handkerchief of Dove Tree
Avies Koreana or Korean Fir
Carpinus Betulus or Hornbeam
On the Playing fields:
2 Quercus Robur or English Oak
Fraxinous Ornus or Flowering Ash
Fraxinous Exesior or Common Ash
Our thanks to Roz Richardson and Acacia.
As we live in a conservation area, a good 'rule of thumb' to remember is, any tree that has a diameter of 75mm, measured 1500mm from its base is protected. If under this 75mm it may be trimmed or removed If you are in any doubt, please contact the Tree Warden - he is more than happy to help and offer advice.
Below is an information leaflet from the forestry commission which you may find useful.
