BERA Street Tree Replanting Project
A BERA Committee Member, Alasdair Barron, has devised and organised an impressive Street Tree Replanting Project on our Estate. He has worked closely with Council officers, who have some funding for this work, but need local groups such as ours to work with. Councillor Manda Rigby also provided funding. Most importantly, Alasdair worked with our own residents to agree which trees should go where. As you can see from the pictures, this has drawn support from all age groups.
Alasdair has written an account (here) of how he did this. He, and the Council Tree team, hope that other local groups can use this to help them with similar schemes where they live. Alasdair's scheme has received much local publicity and has been much praised.
Francoise Pace has now taken the lead for BERA on Street Trees.
