FIVE trees in a Weston garden could be saved from the chainsaw if a council plan goes ahead.

FIVE trees in a Weston garden could be saved from the chainsaw if a council plan goes ahead.

The residents of the house in Montpelier had applied to chop down two horse chestnuts and three ashes.

But North Somerset Council officers say the 70-year-old plants 'add considerably' to the conservation area in which they stand and should be protected with a Tree Preservation Order, which means they cannot be removed.

Anybody with comments on the potential order should contact the unitary authority's streets and open spaces department by February 4.
