Removal of dangerous tree in Glusburn to begin next week

This story was published 23 February 2021

The emergency removal of a dangerous tree in Glusburn will get under way on Monday, March 1.


A road closure will be in operation on the A6068 outside the Dog and Gun pub lasting for five consecutive days between 9am and 4pm.

Local member Councillor Philip Barrett said: “The disease in the tree means there is a significant risk of branches falling off and given its close proximity to the road this poses a safety hazard for road users.

“There are a number of healthy trees on the verge so please be assured that this won’t considerably change the appearance of the street.”

A number of replacement trees have already been planted in the verge towards Carr Head Lane by the Parish Council. These have been funded from Councillor Barrett’s locality budget.

Advance warning signs are in place and there will be a signed diversion. Operatives working on site will be observing all Government guidelines on safe social distancing.
