Declining Oak

Declining Oak

A large oak tree on a busy road in Corsham that had displayed evidence of severe dieback has been given a new lease of life – as a habitat for up to 300 species – thanks to Bawden Tree Care.

This lovely veteran tree presented a risk to vehicles and pedestrians from falling limbs and branches. However, following a recommendation by Bawden Tree Care Supervisor David Abrahams, the land owners agreed to allow the creation of a tree ‘monolith’ to provide a wonderful habitat for birds, bats, insects, fungi and lichen.
