The Parish Council has been contacted by a number of residents concerned about the extent of the tree works at Nancy’s Wood and we understand the concern.
The Parish Council commissions regular arboricultural reports on the trees under its care and programmes the required tree works. At the same time, the council has also put in place a management plan for Nancy’s Wood which will see it’s ecology improved over the coming years.
The latest tree survey identified a number of trees for felling due to a shortened life expectancy / poor form. These works have been undertaken and leave a large part of the woodland open. The Parish Council will be undertaking a comprehensive planting programme later this year to replace the trees, plant additional understory shrubs and to plant wildflowers too.
