A project is underway to preserve lime trees in the grounds of Winchester Cathedral. In recent years they have not been sustaining healthy growth. There are over 300 trees in the cathedral grounds. They are so close together that every tree is poorly. Alternate trees will be removed, allowing the remaining ones to flourish.
