Comments:

I am writing on behalf of the Horsham Society to say that we have a firm policy of objecting to the unnecessary removal or pruning of mature trees (particularly forest trees) that have been deliberately retained within new developments. We would therefore ask that if the Council's expert considers it essential on safety or other grounds for there to be surgery to this tree that it is restrained and done in such a way as to retain the overall shape and stature
