Five trees to be felled at Kingston Lacey
Five trees will be cut down to maintain the safety of Beech Avenue trees at Kingston Lacey near Wimborne.
Work started on the famous beech avenue earlier this week and is due to last for five weeks.
Peter Samson, Head ranger at Kingston Lacy said: "This is a much-loved avenue, planted back in 1835, but unfortunately now many of the trees are dying from a combination of old age, disease and climate changes.
"The work we are carrying out will keep the avenue safe for people driving along the B3082 and help to ensure that the remaining trees survive for as long as possible.

"We know how much people love the avenue but since beech trees normally only have a lifespan of around 200 years and they are suffering from many factors, no least pollution from traffic on the road."
The National Trust is putting together plans to plant an avenue of Hornbeams to replace the Beech Avenue.
