Ivy growing on trees

Dec 6, 2021 | Community News, Council News

The Council has received communication regarding concerns over Ivy on the trees.

Ivy isn’t parasitic, doesn’t ’smother’ trees and generally co-exists happily with healthy trees. It can conceal areas of disease or weak branches or the Ivy gets high up into the canopy creating a ‘sail’ in a wind exposed tree.

The Council seeks expert advice from an arboriculturist   Quantified tree survey reports are produced and the Council aims to act on any points raised acted in a timely manner.  Periodic specialist inspection are supported by regular, routine visual checks.

If  you do have any concerns and spot any fallen trees /  potential hazards please contact the Council by email to theclerk@millbrook-pc.gov.uk or send a private message to the Council’s Facebook page.
