Copper beech tree (Fagus sylvatica f. purpurea) at Caroline Avenue in Newcourt (Dec 2019)
Information: The large Copper beech tree was once in the grounds of Newcourt House and as the area changed became a part of the housing estate. It's location provided a huge amount of visual beauty and benefit for all of the local community. Over time decay fungi such as Giant Polypore began to grow and spread within the root system of the tree and the fruiting bodies soon became visisble. Rather than support the tree and look at methods to remove the decay fungi the Exeter City Council choose the option of felling. In my opinion - if the land owners had of taken better care of this great tree and used methods such as Avengelus Pro to treat the tree at the first visible signs of the decay fungi - the tree could of been saved. Once the decay fungi has broken down in the ground the replacement tree(s) will be planted - there is currently no fixed date on this yet. A video study of the tree can be found here.
Landowner: Exeter City Council (Public land) *This needs to be double checked*
