Dangerous trees to be removed in Pershore's Abbey Park

Evesham Editorial 30th Jun, 2023   0

WORK will start on Monday (July 3) to remove three decaying trees in Pershore’s Abbey Park that have been identified as posing a risk to the public.

Independent specialists have carried out tests on the three poplar trees, all of which have large holes (cavities) in them and are rotting inside.

They are so decayed there is a real risk they will topple over, posing a danger to the public as they are within busy areas of the park.

Replacement trees will be planted in the autumn.

Coun Emma Stokes, executive board member for Resident and Customer Services on Wychavon District Council, said: “I thank residents for their understanding while this disappointing, but essential work, is carried out to protect users of the park.

“We will be planting replacement trees in the autumn, which is the best time of year to plant trees.

“We may plant them in a slightly different area to give them the best chance to establish and thrive, but they will be in your park.”
