Brocklebank Lane, just off Mather Avenue, has lost three of its trees this week.
I had a call from a lady worried about why the trees were suddenly being cut down.
It seems that vandalism (in other words people setting fires at the base of the trees) has meant the trunk is not strong enough to support the tree properly in each case and so they've had to come down because they are dangerous. What a shame.
I'm posting this here partly so that there is an explanation out as to why this is happening.
