Tree Survey

The Parish Council commissioned a local company to re-inspect the significant trees located on all of the open spaces owned and maintained by the Council, and to produce a report in respect of their condition and management requirements.

A Site visit was carried out on August 21st 2020. A total of sixty-nine trees and four groups of trees were inspected.

The main Village Greens and much of Mount Pleasant Green are within the Hertford Heath Conservation Area. Therefore, there is a legal requirement to give the Local Planning Authority six weeks’ prior notice (a ‘section 211 notice’) before any tree works are undertaken at these sites.

Inspection was carried out at ground level, including a visual and tactile examination of external features. The principal objective of this survey is to identify any the potential for impact to arise and offer recommendations to aid in its avoidance.

Visual assessment, in accordance with accepted arboricultural practice, was based on apparent vitality (leaf cover, extension growth), bud production, presence of deadwood and die back, fractured and detached limbs, evidence of excessive basal movement, bacterial and/or fungal infection and external indications of stem and basal decay likely to affect the structural condition of the tree.

Tree surveys were undertaken at the following sites:

  • Mount Pleasant Green
  • The Main Village Green
  • War Memorial Green
  • Allotment land (West of London Road)
  • Pindar Green
  • The Playing Field
