Enfield Close Trees Crowned

The three ash trees in Enfield Close were crowned today. Lower limbs were trimmed last week.

The team were back again today to do some serious crowning.

What I don't understand is why at least one of the trees, the one in the middle, hasn't been taken out altogether. In my view, and to be fair, the view of those doing this work, is that that tree should come out altogether to allow the other two to get more moisture and thrive.

As it stands, the condition of the limbs was poor due to lack of moisture, and the ground is rising around the bases, a sure sign that the trees can't get enough water. The tree nearest the path is forcing up the tarmac on the footpath creating a trip hazard.

I'm having a walkabout next Tuesday with a CBC officer to specifically look at the ward's trees.
