Tree work underway

Those of you that visit the cemetery may have noticed that recently some of the driveways were hard to travel along in a vehicle, as low branches had become a hazard.

This was especially true along the avenue of Redwoods, where the trees were crowding each other out and there was reduced light.  The Tree Officer has instigated a programme of removal of the lower branches (Crown lifting) throughout the cemetery and the photograph above shows what a remarkable difference can be made by more space and more light. One side of the avenue has been completed and hopefully the other side will follow soon.

NOTE- You may see a Tree Survey Officer in the Cemetery as BCC are completing their five yearly safety check of trees.
