HONITON Town Council's honorary tree wardens declared a "conflict of interest" and offered no comment when an application for the removal of a lime tree came before the council's planning committee last night (Tuesday).
Ann Simms is seeking permission to fell the tree, which is in the grounds of 9 Butts Close.
Councillors were told the tree is too big for its location, is overhanging neighbouring properties and blocking out light.
The committee is recommending the applicant look at reducing the tree's crown, rather than chopping it down.
