Last year the trees lining the top road between the village and the top of Terrington Bank received a comprehensive overhaul including a trim. This year the intention is for trees along Mowthorpe Lane to enjoy the same attention. In addition, trees at the cemetery are in need of a more thorough programme of thinning and trimming. This work is being costed and will then move forward.
Also in need of attention are trees on The Plump due to excessive overhang along with broken and dead branches. Castle Howard are being consulted as to their wishes and intentions with regard to these trees. In the meantime we may apply to Ryedale District Council for permission to carry out the required work on trees in a Conservation Area.
It is worth mentioning for those who may well not be aware that for any work to be carried out on any trees (above a given juvenile size) within the village centre Conservation Area, it is necessary to apply to and be given permission by Ryedale District Council. Any queries on this subject then Ryedale’s tree adviser, John Clayton will be pleased to advise you. Contact: John Clayton – Tree and Landscape Officer on 01653 600666 ext 459.
