Tree safety works underway

Following safety recommendations from an independent arboriculturalist, MHT Field Staff and contractors will be carrying out work on trees in and around Malvern over the coming weeks.

Each year a third of trees on our land next to properties and roads are surveyed to identify any potential risks.  This year the Wyche Road area, Guarlford, Poolbrook, and Malvern Common were surveyed and tree management will be carried out in these locations where required.

Recommendations in the tree safety report include the removal of dead branches from trees, pruning, and, in a very small number of cases, felling.  Any trees that are recommended to be felled that are notable or are part of an avenue will be replaced with new saplings to ensure the characteristic avenues and landscapes are maintained.

Relevant permissions have been sought from and granted by Malvern Hills District Council for trees within Malvern's Conservation Areas and for those with Tree Preservation Orders.
