  • A Tree Suveyor has inspected and his opinion is Aragon manage the City Council's trees in line with the formally adopted Trees and Woodlands Strategy.
    The strategy clearly states that the City Council will not prune trees for satellite reception if an engineering solution is not possible and any tree works would affect the amenity value of the tree.

    He is of the opinion that in this instance, the removal of limbs in the direction the satellite dish is pointing would result in a door being cut in the upper crown.
    It may be possible to reduce some of the ends of the branches in that direction, but due to the size of the tree, he do not think that this would resolve this issue.

    It appears that a substantial area of the crown would need removing.

    State changed to: No further action
