Work required on iconic tree

Wed, 12/05/2012

East Cambridgeshire District Council is being forced to carry out major work on a significant tree on Palace Green in Ely.

Over the last few years, the District Council has been monitoring the upper canopy of the mature Sycamore tree beside the boundary wall of The Old Palace in Ely.

During a recent inspection, officers found an area of dead bark and exposed dead sapwood near the main structural branch towards the centre of the tree canopy.
