Trees felled to halt elm virus
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.”
