Old tree which was home to bees and bats crashes down in Warwick

AN OLD tree which was home to a bees nest and bats has crashed down in a Warwick park.

Recent bad weather saw the huge tree come down across the bridge near the cafe in St Nicholas Park.

Warwick District Council said when it went to remove the tree – which employees recently cut back – they found a bees nest and bats living there.

A spokesman told the Observer: “The tree is quite an old tree within St Nicholas Park and though we had carried out some pollarding, a combination of age and weather has resulted in the tree coming down.




“The bees nest has now been removed and the presence of bats means we have taken extra time to ensure they are safe. The tree should be removed by Friday.”
