Trees work a priority

March 11, 2011 3:58 PM

As part of the work of the Ward Committee, resource has been allocated for a survey of approximately 1,500 street trees in the ward. The purpose of the survey is to collect technical data about the health of the trees for better management of the tree stock, recognising the aesthetic and environmental benefits which trees bring. Sometimes trees have to be replaced and the survey will also assess opportunities for planting new trees.

In related news the businesses in Lansdowne Terrace have recently agreed to pay for 7 trees to be erected outside their premises to help to improve the area.
