  • The contractor has arrived to removed dead trees down Charldane road today but after talking to the guy he said the tree outside number 37 is not on his list. He acknowledged the tree is dead but he could not do anything about it unless it is on his list of trees.

  • The tree is STILL DEAD and I do not think it will be reincarnated. The tree is leaning towards the road and needs to be removed before it falls onto a car or pedestrian. It has now been 6 months since I first reported the problem.

  • Update from your local councillors

    We have raised this issue with the Council, after being contacted by a local resident about this. The trees in question have been added to the Tree Maintenance Unit’s list for replacement.

    This means the dead and diseased trees will be removed as soon as possible (there is currently a backlog). The trees will then be replaced during the following planting season. We have been advised that the replacement trees will be Amelanchier arborea ‘Robin Hill’. This tree has the same features as a Cherry Tree, blossom in the spring and vivid Autumn colour but without the risk of damage to the highway.

    We have asked Council Officers to make sure they examine all of the trees on Charldane Road, so that any that need replacing are all replaced in one go.

    Thanks for raising this and if there's anything else we can help with as your local councillors, please do just let us know.

    Best wishes, Cllr John Hills, Cllr Matt Hartley, Cllr Roger Tester CHNE ward team
