Poisoned tree lives

A TREE in a public park in Watlington that was deliberately poisoned has survived.

Someone drilled a series of holes around the base of the rowan in the Paddock and inserted tubes containing poison.

After the incident in August, parish council vice-chairman Ian Hill said the tree had been damaged “irreparably”.

But now the council says the tree has survived, although it needs a close eye to be kept on it.
