Back in May, Ascott Church launched a ‘Sponsor a Tree’ campaign to help care for and maintain the wonderful avenue of 25 Lime trees which is one of the iconic features of our beautiful and historic
village. These trees are now in urgent need of attention, and the Parochial Church Council has taken professional advice and is proposing to go ahead with the work in the near future.
The method chosen is to arrange for the pollarding of the entire crown of the trees, which is consistent with the work that has been done on previous occasions (because as you will realise, this is a job that it is necessary to do every few years in order to preserve the trees for the benefit of future generations).
For a while after the work, there will be a noticeable visual impact and we want to make sure that all Ascott residents know about this in advance.
We are therefore inviting all residents of the village to let us have your views and to is complete a short online survey here before Monday 14th December 2015. Your feedback is important to us.
This is part of the consultation that we started in May and we are hopeful that the work will be completed before the end of February 2016.
