CAMPAIGNERS opposed to the felling of an historic tree have revealed their hopes that it can be saved.
The fate of the 200-year-old cedar tree, located in the grounds of Digswell House, WGC, has divided residents at the Grade II listed building.
Welwyn Hatfield Council had granted a felling order after learning the tree was diseased but, after some residents started a watering programme, the cedar has started to show some signs of recovery.
Resident Graeme Hunt said: "I do not see why this tree cannot live out its natural life protected by us."
