Hayling Island's Trees

Our Oldest Tree Is Saved

St Mary's
The yew tree in the grounds of St Mary's Church,
which is near 2000 years old with a girth of nine metres,
is in urgent need of attention.

We have received the following letter from the Rev. Jenny Gaffin:
Thank you so much for helping us promote our Yew Tree appeal.
We've had really strong support via the website,
and also received a couple of large individual donations.
In addition, our contractors have significantly reduced the costs,
so we can now set to work fixing the tree.
I'm hugely grateful to HIHS for their support in this.

Hayling Tree Wardens

Langstone Harbour
Tree Wardens are a group of local volunteers formed under
the Tree Council National Tree Warden Scheme.
------
Havant Borough Tree Wardens are involved in:
tree trails and publishing tree trail booklets,
putting on tree exhibitions,
conducting guided tree walks,
giving talks, tree planting,
seed collecting and planting projects with local schools,
warning the Tree Officer of threats to trees,
supporting the establishment of TPOs.

Tree Preservation Order (TPO)

Sinah Lane
The Town and Country Planning Acts give
Havant Borough Council the power to protect trees,
using a Tree Preservation Order (TPO).

Everyone can examine the plans at Havant Borough Council,
(Public Service Plaza, Civic Centre Road, Havant, PO9 2AX)
and see what trees are protected in their own
and neighbouring gardens.
