I believe that residents need to be involved in the decisions regarding which trees should be planted on their road and so I am delighted that the Council are allowing residents of Brocklebank Road a say in which trees are planted as replacements to those set to be removed.
We are asking residents to let us know which of the six species of trees identified by the Trees & Woodlands Team as being suitable for this road they would like to see planted on Brocklebank Road.
The tree species available are
1. Acer platanoides Deborah
2. Acer platanoides Princeton Gold
3. Acer pseudoplatanus Spaethii
4. Pyrus calleryana Chanticleer
5. Sorbus intermedia Brouwers
6. Ulmus Lobel
It is possible to plant one of each or a mixture. Evidence suggests that having a mix of trees is better for the environment and can help prevent losing all the trees in a road due to disease.
These trees will be planted at the beginning of this year’s planting season, that is at the end of November or beginning of December, which will give the saplings the best chance of survival. The trees will be planted in slightly different locations to the trees removed.
