The autumn leaf colours have been fabulous over the last couple of weeks, but several trees have also needed attention from the tree surgeons, to make them safe. The most noticeable was the large horse chestnut near the tennis courts, after a large branch fell onto the tennis courts during high winds. This tree has now been reduced down to a tall stump, with the hope that this will re-sprout, and so not need complete removal. However, this is one of the bigger, more mature trees, many of which are suffering from various diseases, and so we can only hope for the best! Many thanks to the tree surgeons who left a pile of wood chips for use in the wildlife area.
