Tree tidying

From Parks Development Officer, Bruce Irving:

Ash tree with honey fungus
damage near north
substation wall

I am just writing to let you know that some tree work will be taking place at Millfields over the next few days.

Works will include some canopy lifting, the removal of dead wood and some larger limbs, which need to be removed.

Works will also include the felling of three trees which are diseased.  These include a young / mature ash located next to the substation which is suffering from Honey Fungus and a similar sized lime. A young plane tree located on Leabridge Road will also be felled as it is suffering from honey fungus.

Diseased wood will be removed from site, larger sections of timber will be stacked in the wooded edge of the river on south Millfields in order to create habitat and the small branches will be chipped and used as mulch on site.

The damage to this lime tree
shows that honey fungus is thriving
on damaged wood below ground
