South Lakeland District Council has informed the Town Council that it intends to remove a dying oak tree which is located in the narrow garden between Main Street and the Community Orchard.
For a number of years this large tree has been producing fewer leaves each spring, and this year a large fungus has grown out of the trunk just above ground level. This fungus will have impacted the roots and may have affected the main trunk.
In view of the strategic position of this tree overhanging Main Street, SLDC has decided, reluctantly, to remove the tree on safety grounds.
