Anyone concerned locally about the felling of the trees on the estate alongside Trelyon Avenue should be reassured that this is part of an ongoing woodland management plan which will improve the Estates many acres of woodlands for many years. It is also the case that these particular trees were considered dangerous and must be removed by order of PDC.
The problem is created over a long period following these trees originally being planted too close together. This leads to tall and spindly trees with insufficient root balls to guarantee stability, particularly the case with Beech trees.
The sick Beech, Sycamore, and Turkey Oaks have been replaced by Oak, Sweet Chestnut, Beech, Larch trees and wild flowering Cherry which should ensure that the woodlands are vibrant and interesting to future generations of Guests and local people who enjoy the estate grounds.
