The Sycamore Tree by the church

The tree has been identified as being diseased and Highways want either to fell it or reduce it to a monolith.

Unfortunately Highways did not consult with the Parish Council and the work was almost carried out.

The Parish Council are now working to see what other options might be available to save this significant and historical tree.

In the meantime signs have been put on the tree to make sure no work is carried out before…

Larch Wood

Peter & Sarah FitzGerald have decided to fell the majority of the larch in the small wood immediately above Pen Mill Farm.
They are nearly 90 years old and were planted as a nurse crop to protect the young oak, which they have been holding back for some years.
