Hor­sham trees to be re­placed

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Un­safe elms in Hor­sham’s Wil­son Street will be re­placed as part of Hor­sham Ru­ral City Coun­cil’s on­go­ing street tree re­newal pro­gram.

Coun­cil tech­ni­cal ser­vices di­rec­tor John Martin said in­de­pen­dent ar­borists had rec­om­mended the coun­cil re­move stands of age­ing trees along the road due to their haz­ardous, or near haz­ardous con­di­tion.

Sim­i­lar re­place­ment trees, Ja­panese elms, will be re­planted in the com­ing months.

“Hor­sham has a pop­u­la­tion of elm trees in its tree es­tate. They have been fan­tas­tic street and park trees, how­ever, in many cases they are age­ing and it is time for their re­newal,” Mr Martin said. “Ad­vanced trees will be planted to lessen the im­pact of the re­moval.”
