Over the last few weeks their have been a number of replacement new trees planted in the area. (This has been done as part of a replacement contract already established by the previous Council administration).
In most cases these trees have been welcomed and will in future help make the Oscott area look that much greener.
I would ask residents to help look after these trees and should we ever have a drought? put a bucket of used water at the base of a new tree near them to help the tree survive.
I am however still calling for a number of older large trees which are causing a lot of residents problems to be removed in a phased way to be replaced by new trees. I am also calling for trees in many roads to be pruned more vigorously more often.
