The Great Churchyard, Bury St Edmunds
The Great Churchyard, Bury St Edmunds
The central avenue of lime trees in the Great Churchyard, Bury St Edmunds, was heavily pruned, or re-pollarded In February 2006. The trees were last pruned in 1990 and this is the latest in a cycle of pollarding and re-pollarding dating back to at least 1950. The operation has to be repeated on a regular basis because the re-growth becomes unstable after a period of years due to decay at the pruning points and the increase in weight of the branches with the passage of time. The trees should react with strong re-growth during the summer, and it is anticipated that they will need no further attention for at least eight to ten years.
