The big feral conifers at the far corner of Easebourne Park, separating the park from the cemetery and the allotments, are being felled and removed week commencing 21 September. This long-planned work has been coordinated with the County Council, South Downs National Park, Cowdray, St Mary’s Church and the allotment authorities. It will open up the vista and create more light for Park users, Birthday House residents and many allotment holders.
We’re hoping to have several of the larger stumps left 10 feet above the ground for future carving. In time, the conifers will be replaced with native trees, plans for which we will share in future.
The park and play area will continue to be open for people to use away from the area of works. The contractors will be on site for a week.
