We have been informed by the landowner that those who use the bridleway from Park Lane Histon to Oakington across Meadow Farm should take care as the farmers have recently been informed in an arboricultural report that the trees are diseased and dangerous.
They advise walkers, usually with their dogs, should avoid walking under or near the trees and perhaps keep to the legal bridleway, in the interests of their safety. People could be seriously hurt by falling branches. The trees need to be felled and roots removed.
There is a tree preservation order on the trees and they are seeking a written “tree works order” from South Cambridgeshire District Council.
