Work is due to begin next week in preparation to move a Gingko tree to a new site in Knowle’s gardens.
A specialist tree moving company is set to start work on Monday (April 9) on behalf of developer PegasusLife, who have permission to build a 113-home retirement community at Knowle.
The tree will be moved from the front lawns of the ground to an area lower down the garden.
The specialists will create a trench with supporting sloping sides, around the tree to allow it to form a root ball over the coming months before it is relocated.
The work is expected to take between four to five days to complete but the tree itself is not due to be relocated until 2019.

The trench will remain open until the tree has been relocated, with the excavation being protected with fencing.
An EDDC spokeswoman confirmed the existing path around the side and front of the building will remain in public use.
