Won't cost much. There's nary a spot in either road that you could sensibly plant a tree in.

Just so more trees can topple over in the high winds..maybe they should start by cutting back some of the trees that are overhanging the roads and footpaths first.

Some roads have been stripped bare of trees and it good see more being planted.

You are right that you can't just plant trees in an urban environment and leave them as they do require attention especially at their base and when they drop leaves.

Downhill Dorothy builds two massive tower blocks and gets bundles in section 106 money plus a huge boost to her council tax revenue

People who actually live here get no reduction in council tax, overcrowding, stretched infrastructure, stretched education and medical resources ............ but we do get a few trees

Seems like quite a bargain to me - for Dotty that is, who has moved well away from the area - us residents just get the detritus of her political and administrative failure.

Next thing is someone like Sharpie (AKA Mr Thornhill) will tell us how they haven't put the council tax up, some consolation.
