Replacements for Diseased Walnut Tree  

The diseased walnut tree at the junction of Church Street and Derby Road, Bramcote has been assessed by a professional arboricultural consultant and found to have decay comprising 62% of its cross section. Given the location of the tree in relation to the surrounding roads, buildings and public areas, the recommendation is that is should be felled. Two replacement walnut trees will be planted on the open space this winter to compensate the tree that is being removed.

Christmas Tree Recycling

The arrangements this year for disposal of real Christmas trees will involve partnership working with Veolia. Residents are encouraged to dispose of their trees at the Household Waste and Recycling centres. I have been informed that the County Council has agreed with its contractor Veolia that based on the tonnage of green waste collected over the festive period, a contribution will be made towards environmental projects in Nottinghamshire.
