Tree works in Langold Country Park

Work to remove a number of dead or diseased trees on the fringes of Langold Country Park will take place next week as part of Bassetlaw District Council’s annual woodland management programme.

As a result of a recent tree assessment, up to 40 diseased or dead ash and elm trees have been identified on the edges of the park, close to Doncaster Road between Costhorpe and Langold.

Work will start on Monday 5th December and is expected to take up to 10 days. Due to the location of the tree felling, which is in close proximity to the main road, and to ensure the safety of road users, a lane closure operated by temporary traffic lights will be in place between 9am and 3.30pm each day.

Cllr Julie Leigh, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods at the Council, said: “This tree felling will take place to prevent any significant risk to the public and road users and is part of a responsible woodland management programme.

“The removal of these dead or diseased trees will also allow other trees and saplings in the woodland to become established in their place. We would like to thank regular user of this route for their patience while the work takes place.”
