Neath - Gnoll
WE are sad report a tree disease at the Gnoll Park as per the following NPT CBC report:
Tree felling operations will begin in Gnoll Estate Country Park from next Monday, September 2nd following the discovery of a disease affecting Larch trees.
This follows advice Neath Port Talbot Council received that the fungal disease Phytophthora ramorum had been found in the larch plantations within the award-winning park.
The felling work involving around 5,000 trees has been planned to minimise disruption to visitors but will require the temporary closure of the Moss House woods section of the Country Park until March 2014.
However, all other areas of the Country Park will remain open to visitors including the much-loved children's play areas, Bottom Pond, Fish Pond, the formal footpaths and the Visitor Centre and Café.
