We need to protect more trees in Oban


Keep Oban Beautiful strongly supports the retention, care and planting of trees around the town.

It is, therefore, of great concern to see that trees are being felled on a regular basis and, while we accept that there are many reasons for taking down trees, I would respectfully suggest that very careful thought is given to any felling or pruning programme.

Felling or lopping trees to allow a better view from a window could well spoil the prospect for other residents and visitors who enjoy Oban’s green and wooded appearance, particularly if the trunks and branches are left lying where they fall, often at the roadside. It’s also important to check on whether the tree concerned belongs to you or is the subject of a tree preservation order.
