I have written before about the Council’s poor record in street tree planting in recent years. In particular residents on council estates are treated as second class citizens with dead trees not being replaced and obvious spots for new trees being ignored. I am pursuing the matter.
But I am pleased to report news of a small victory on the Bayonne Estate where after I undertook some persistent lobbying on behalf of local residents some new trees have now been planted. Hurrah!
Good! More trees needed almost everywhere for aesthetic, weather and heat mitigation, cleaner air, and biodiversity reasons. Keep up the tree planting.
Yes good work. We also need some trees on King Street – the contrast with leafy and attractive Chiswick High Road is heartbreaking.
Apprx. How much does it cost to plant a tree ?
