DOZENS of dis­eased or dy­ing trees with Dutch

Elm dis­ease have been felled this year.

About 60 dead elms have been taken down by Aberdeen City Coun­cil and are in­cluded in the hun­dreds of trees which are due to be felled.

There are about 400 of the dis­eased or dy­ing trees, which are mainly be­side roads but some are in parks and gar­dens.

Some of the dis­eased trees still left are in streets which have up to 10 dy­ing trees on them so road clo­sures will be nec­es­sary.

Aberdeen City Coun­cil com­mu­ni­ties con­vener Coun­cil­lor Yvonne Al­lan said: “We must do what we can to try and stop the dis­ease from spread­ing.”
