Aberdeen Park's trees are a distinguishing and much loved feature of the road. We have a regular regime of maintenance and, where necessary, felling and replacement.
We also continue to monitor our trees for disease. The Horse Chestnuts which the majority of our mature trees, show signs of suffering from the Leaf Miner Moth. There is less evidence, fortunately, of Bleeding Canker. Although the trees are not as healthy as we would like the advice we have received is that they are not yet endangered.
There are many trees in Aberdeen Park's gardens as well as on APMC property. Where possible, particularly when trees obstruct or overhang pavements, we encourage owners to keep their trees trimmed. Aberdeen Park is a conservation area and all trees are covered by Tree Preservation Orders, so prior permission must be obtained from Islington Council for any work done on them.
