We now have more trees in the verge of Rough Common Road, and on the green, where the rotten maple stump has been removed. These trees will be watered by Highways during their first year. Thanks to all residents who watered the last batch of trees. After an erratic start I hope the oaks at Oaks Park entrance are now established!
Trees need to be managed and I’m grateful to residents who care for our environment. Residents wishing to work on trees in Conservation Areas (i.e. the Harbledowns and Havisham House) should seek permission from Planning at the City Council. Nesting begins in March, after which only emergency work is permitted until September.
