Tree Felling in the Wellhead

We had a couple of queries yesterday over the tree felling that is taking place in the Wellhead Park. Hopefully the picture shows the effect of Honey Fungus and why we needed to act.

Left alone this tree would fall, as the core of the trunk is seriously compromised and the trees main tap root has completely disappeared. Located next to a busy footpath there was the potential for serious threat of injury (or worse) if this tree came down of it’s own accord.
