Tree in need of protection

August 9, 2017

Michael sent this in …
You may have seen this leaning tree at the Stratton Way/Bath Street junction near the Park Road barrier, which I identify as a Metasequoia glyptostroboides or Dawn Redwood, a rare and primitive species introduced from China.
I reported it to the Town Council yesterday and somebody else has reported it to Oxfordshire County Council on June 6th (report no. 1049498)

I attach some pictures. You are welcome to include them in the Blog and if you are able to help arrange for it to be replanted and the supporting structure repaired, I should be very grateful. Otherwise it may well die or be vandalised.

    …you need to be making a new report weekly/daily on “”. The more reports, separate reports, about the tree the better.
