Seavington Oaks

For those of us with long memories you may recall that two oak trees were planted to celebrate the Millennium, positioned on the site of the old village hall at the top of the field. The growth of the right hand of these two oak trees is rather stunted and so we sent samples of both its branches and roots to the RHS at Wisley for their analysis.

They have informed us that it is diseased, and that treatment is impractical, with a risk that it may spread to the other Oak if not dealt with. With this advice, we shall now unfortunately have to fell the tree to allow the healthy oak to flourish into maturity. We’d obviously like to replace this oak tree in due course and would welcome ideas of suitable locations, dedications and maybe a special occasion on which to plant it.
