Two Trees to be felled in the Park

TWO CHERRY TREES TO BE CUT DOWN

Later this week, the Council will be removing two trees from the Park – they are very obvious as all their loose twigs/branches have been removed.  They are just two trunks and main limbs at present.  They are diseased; the bark has a fungal infection which could spread to the rest of the Cherry trees.  The whole avenue of Cherries is under stress, as the tarmac is too close to the trees.  We will be replacing them using a donation of £350 that came to FoRP from the Murrayfield DAFs, to commemorate Ian Shiels, who had done so much for the park (he helped set up FoRP). The DAFs have generously offered to give an further £50 to help cover the costs of the trees
