The Black Walnut Tree

The Wardens are looking for a means to remove the Black Walnut Tree located beside the Rectory.

For the past few years the branches and “droppings” have been damaging the Rectory roof and we fear the roots are damaging the Rectory foundation.

We have quotes from arborists to remove the tree and clear up the brush. These quotes represent a cost to the Parish.

We have also been advised that the wood from the tree is worth somewhere between $10,000 and $30,000.

Our attempts to find a purchaser of the wood have not been successful.

The Wardens wish to hear from anyone who can identify a wood merchant or sawmill who will purchase the wood.

If you can help, please contact the wardens at wardens@stjameskingson.ca.
