Following routine inspections, the Wirral Council tree team has found 11 trees in Arrowe Country Park with significant health issues and has started to remove them.
Nine healthy trees will also be worked on to improve public safety. The work is next to Arrowe Park Road so there is traffic management in place for around a week.
As always, removing trees is a last resort but all precautions will be taken to support nesting birds and other protected species.
The work, which is taking place between Thingwall Road East junction and the Toby Carvery, should be finished by Tuesday 18 April and plans are in place to plant 33 new trees in Arrowe Country Park later in the year.
When it comes to trees on council land, in parks and along the road, Wirral Council has a dedicated team that carry out regular inspections.
