9.2 The issue of a very large lime tree outside the property Kynama, Henton was discussed. This tree is very large and is causing issues to the BT cables which are running through the middle branches. Various options have been explored and were discussed: BT survey to investigate possibilities of cable relocation, quotes for reducing height of tree on a very regular basis and also felling the tree to stop the risk of BT cable line failure.
