A road in Stafford will be closed while work is carried out to remove two diseased trees.
The Lime and Beech trees are at the side of the town’s Corporation Street and an inspection found they were in poor condition and could pose a danger to pedestrians and motorists.
The work will be carried out from 8am on Sunday (22 March) and the road will be closed until the trees are removed – which is expected to be completed by early afternoon.
Stafford Borough Council had an independent inspection of the trees carried out after a routine survey found problems with the 60-foot trees - including Bleeding Canker, an infection of the bark caused by fungus.
