About 5 years ago a number of cherry trees were donates by trees for life to the Aldridge Recreation Ground.
The friends of Queslett Nature Reserve arranged to have them planted on the Shady Lane boundary of the recreation ground, where there was a gap. A number of residents and our MP helped us to plant these trees in suitable locations.

Recent however these trees mysteriously disappeared leaving just the holes.
Along With Councillor Barbara Dring I have been investigating their disappearance.

I have now found out they were removed by the Council due to lower bark damaged caused either by squirrels or more likely some varieties of dogs which are prone to noring tree bark.

The Council are now looking into having replacement trees donated by Tree loving charities put back with a little more protection, perhaps next year.
