Garvald Woodlands Project – Update on bridge area tree work

An update from Karl Ingram:

Planned tree management works in the small area up above the bridge will be conducted in the next couple of months. This will involve removing six Larch conifers to allow more light to existing large trees, remove dangerous branches hanging over the road, cutting back ivy and tidying up the area. This work was given majority support by village residents through a consultation last summer and funding has been agreed through the Crystal Rig Windfarm Fund. Permission has been granted by Nunraw Abbey and Council Approval Notice obtained. A local recommended tree surgeon, Sandy Cassells of Root & Branch Arboriculture in Haddington, will be completing the work. More details to follow once funding has been received.
