Our heritage of trees in Charlton Kings

Our heritage of trees in Charlton Kings

Each year, Cheltenham Borough Council replaces a number of trees in our parish that have come to the end of their span and increases the number by new planting. We know that there is a need to plant new trees now, to make up for a period of time when few new trees were added to enhance Charlton Kings' green environment. The Parish Council has therefore, for the last three years, contributed towards additional tree planting in our parish under the Borough Council's professional tree- care contract. More »

In 2018/19, we bought three specimen trees that have been planted in the Sandy Lane Playing Field, which is in one of the four new areas that have joined the parish this year.

We aim to increase the diversity of types of tree in our area, to make up for the terrible tree diseases that are removing so many of our Ash, Horse Chestnuts, Alders and Oaks. This year we have planted:

  • A Strawberry Tree (Arbutus unedo) – so called because its small red fruits look attractive but are so bitter that you only ever try one!
  • A Small-leaved Lime (Tilia cordata) variety 'Winter Orange' which has stunning orange buds.
  • An Elm (Ulmus lutece) that is resistant to the terrible Dutch elm disease.

We hope that you will look out for these brilliant trees, enjoy them as they grow and protect them for generations to come.

A photograph of the Strawberry Tree is attached to this notice. Photographs of the other trees can be found on our Gallery page » Less
