WEST MALLING: Unsafe lime trees to be felled at church

Friday 15th October 2021

THREE lime trees at St Mary’s Church in West Malling must be felled.

The trees line the footpath from the High Street to the church - two on the south side of the path, and one to the north.

The trees were first recommended for felling back in 2019, but works were delayed due to COVID.

The Safety Survey requires action to be taken within the next three months

A spokesman said: “It's obviously sad news.

“No-one wants to see trees come down, but with so many people passing through the churchyard each day there are safety issues to manage and, at least, we can make sure new trees replace these ones lost.”
