LARGE ASH TREE IN CROPSTON

Leicestershire County Council has advised the Parish Council that they intend to remove a large ash tree on Station Road, Cropston.

The tree is located at the junction of Station Road and Sandham Bridge Road (outside 97 Station Road).  Unfortunately it would appear that the tree is now beyond its safe, useful life expectancy - a recent storm event has further increased the risk posed by the tree.

Due to the highway constraints at this junction it is unlikely that a a new tree will be planted in the same location.
