Works to Trees
30% crown reduction of twisted willow.
Manjil, The Downs, Maldon
Mr. and Mrs. Esplen

Tree Warden Report - Inspected 16th September 2003

This is a large attractive tree but the removal of dead wood would improve its appearance. If the application had been for felling I would have recommended a TPO but as only a 30% crown reduction is requested subject to the work being carried out under supervision.

Recommended: no objection

RESOLVED: that the Town Council has no objection to the application.
  3. QUESTIONS FROM THE PRESS AND PUBLIC
