The Turkey Oak on The Green, Old Dalby

Following concerns raised by Leicestershire County Council's Highway Tree Inspector the Parish Council recently commissioned a detailed report on the Turkey Oak tree growing on The Green at the junction of Main Road and Chapel Lane, Old Dalby. More »

Unfortunately, due to a long-standing fungal colonisation the structural condition of the tree has been found to be poor.

Broughton and Old Dalby Parish Council has a number of trees in parks and open spaces and aims to manage these important resources in a safe and sustainable manner for the enjoyment of all residents.

The Parish Council considers the trees and green spaces within its boundaries to be of paramount importance, however, when it is no longer possible to maintain trees in a safe condition the council may have to take the decision to remove a tree that could pose a risk to residents and/or users of the green spaces and highways in our community.

The Parish Council is seeking further information regarding the potential removal of the Turkey Oak, Melton Borough Council have been alerted to the concerns and will be inspecting the tree in the coming days. The Parish Council will discuss all of the information available and decide how to proceed at its' meeting on 10th June.

The full findings of the consultant are available below. » Less
