During summer 2012 the oaks foliage was looking anemic, with pale green leaves. Later in autumn it failed to lose it's leaves (not unusual apparently for a young oak). So a Waterlooville tree warden contacted Hampshire County Councils arbicultural office for advice and it was agreed that a warden would apply a high nitrogen fertilizer during the spring and summer months of 2013.
It is hoped that the trees health will be improved and that it will start to thrive. If and when the situation changes, updates on this story will be posted in News and Events.
