Trees in St. Matthew’s Avenue

October 24, 2008

In case residents are concerned at the felling of some street trees in St. Matthew’s Avenue today the explanation, from RBK’s arboricultural officer is as follows:-

Just a quick message to inform you of the removal of 3 large lime trees outside 35, 16 and opposite 21 St Matthew’s Avenue, Surbiton. The tree outside 16 has fungal brackets (Ganoderma spp) at the base . The three trees have extensive internal decay creating a void inside the trunk which makes them unstable. The upshot of this instability is either that the tree is blown over by strong winds or major bows of the tree break off. The three trees will be removed on Friday 24th of October.
