Hillsboro Road, 13


Species and Location of Tree

An Ash tree approximately 16m in height, situated on the front boundary with Hillsboro Road.  The tree is a little dense and wide-spreading.  A low growing branch has recently snapped off and is hanging over the public footpath.

Description of Approved Works

Crown thin by 20% including the removal of dead wood and the hanging branch.  One main low growing branch to the left when viewed from the road should be severed at the main trunk in order to restore the balance of the tree.  The height and basic shape should be retained.  It is important to prune branches at convenient growth points, rather than an all-round reduction or pollarding which is not permitted.
