As local Oscott residents our selves Councillor Barbara Dring and I understand only to well many of our constituents and neighbours are concerned about the need to have the trees in their road pruned. We are both interested in trying to get this done as can be seen from all the campaigning we have done for to get so many trees pruned this year.
Despite delays caused by the storms over the New Year period and the current bad weather, a senior tree officer from Amey Highways has informed me his company is still on target to prune the 1700 trees agreed for this year in Oscott and to plant around 200 replacement trees. There will be some delays caused by the current bad weather however as may be expected. ( most roads in Oscott are due to have tree pruning carried out this year.)
