Ed Dolphin has created this tree assessment.

 

He says
‘Apart from many self sown Horse Chestnut, Sycamore and Elm (which will succumb to Dutch Elm Disease when it reaches 5m tall), there is also a significant amount of Cherry Laurel, Bay, and Rhododendron shrubbery, some of it now large enough to count as a stand of trees.  

I was not aware of the very large Beech number 4, but you can see it now because someone has cleared some of the rampant Bay.  I am not sure where the boundary is, but the tree looks to be in the public ground.’
