Tree Maintenance at Deer Park, Allendale Road

Tree Maintenance at Deer Park, Allendale Road

We have had a couple of queries regarding the tree maintenance being undertaken at the Deer Park currently. The Parish Council instructed a tree surgeon to inspect and report on the condition of the 160 trees on the Deer Park site in Wingerworth, and provide management recommendations. The report was carried out by a surveyor who is a Professional Member of the Arboricultural Association, and a LANTRA accredited professional tree inspector.

The report recommended that 10 trees were felled and the remaining trees were cleared of deadwood with pruning. Of the 10 trees that were felled, 4 have already been replaced, and the Parish Council are due to consider a proposal at the January Council meeting to plant up to 200 trees/hedges at a number of locations around the village; including the park on Allendale Road.

The tree surgeons working on site are also a Professional Member of the Arboricultural Association, and they are working to the report that has been prepared and approved by the Council.
