I refer to the Silver Maple adjacent to Oak Library
I understand that you have been in discussion with my colleagues over the tree. I can now confirm that we will be removing the tree at a date to be determined. This is not an action we take likely but it as a result of a Structural Engineers appraisal of the damage that the tree is likely to do in the future.
I apologise for not advising you in advance of our intentions and certainly before the tree was marked for removal.
Having said that we will be looking to replace the tree with others in the future at locations yet to be determined
