Damage to Trees in St George’s Avenue

This letter has been sent to us:

Dear St George’s team.

I was out to walk yesterday and noticed substantial damage (new and older) to the barks of at least three trees, one of them a larger sapling. The damage, I would say, was caused by sticking something like a stanley knife into the bark and cutting it?  It appears that one of the trees is also “tagged”.

The trees form part of the charm of St George’s Avenue and the bark of the sapling may be damaged very far (too far?).  We are already missing one or two trees nearer the cup-de-sac end of the Avenue.

Just thought that I bring this to the attention of the association and have cc’d in the Anti Social Behaviour officer, Sharon Davie, whom I will be seeing this afternoon.

Thank you.

Please keep your eyes open to prevent any further damage done to the trees of our street!

    Sadly, trees and environmental protection do no longer fare highly in either planning approvals or general considerations. Therefore, I would not ‘hold my breath’ that anyone notices or even cares, even though this area is supposed to be a ‘conservation area’.
