It is with regret that we have to report the demise of another mature Elm tree in the Pavilion gardens, due to it contracting Dutch Elm disease.
The tree (species unknown) is about 12 metres tall and was in close proximity to another old Elm tree that was felled a couple of years ago, also due to Dutch Elm disease. The disease has possibly spread through the root system.
The tree is situated on the North lawn, and will be felled in the next few weeks.
