Cathedral to fell more than 100 trees along riverbanks (From Durham Times):
MORE than 100 trees on Durham’s riverbanks could be felled in a cathedral scheme aimed at securing the woodland’s future.
Durham Cathedral officials say the felling would allow new, healthier trees to grow and more native species to be planted.
The Very Rev Michael Sadgrove, the Dean of Durham, said: “I think the woodland is a real gift to Durham – one of its most special assets.
“This is a world-famous environment of incomparable beauty and we want to do all we can to keep it that way.”
