  • Not all trees are on private land; in particular the ones near The Barn property and to the rear of 21, 22 and 23 Farrier Way. Larger branches are now breaking off and landing in gutters and gardens. The roots of these trees will be weakening and if they blow over in high winds then consequences will arise.
