Consultation About A Dying Tree outside 55-57 Blakeney Road, S10 (our reference 12046226)

Closes 21 Feb 2023

Opened 30 Jan 2023

Results expected 24 Feb 2023

Feedback expected 3 Mar 2023

Overview

A Sorbus aucuparia (commonly known as a Rowan tree) has been identified on Blakeney Road outside numbers 55-57 as dying.

An assessment carried out by our tree experts identified that the tree has suffered a major loss of vitality. The majority of crown is now dead and decaying.  Also, a worsening lean suggests root decay. 

Once removed, we propose to replace this tree with a Cercis siliquastrum (Judas tree), which will be planted outside number 55 Blakeney Road.
