Removal of tree by Keynes pond

On Friday 28 June, the Grounds Maintenance  team will be assisting  with the removal of a tree in the Keynes pond courtyard which has been identified as being at a high risk of failure. As this tree is in a highly populated location, the risk of injury is too high for it to be left in place.

The felling of the tree will be carried out by a contractor called Blean Tree Care. They will cordon off the area, and fell the tree in sections and remove the wood from the court yard are through the side gate leading to Turing College.

In the autumn the felled tree will replaced by a substantial new one.

There will be some disruption whilst this work is taking place, and footpath closure whilst the wood is being removed.

We apologise for any inconvenience this work may cause. If there are any queries please contact Estates Customer Services on extension 16666.
