Trees on Bradford Road

Some of the trees on Bradford Road were looking decidedly crooked, and their metal guards were even worse.  We don't know how they got like this, maybe they were bashed by lawn mowers or wheelie bins, or maybe backed into by cars.  Anyway for this month's taskforce we've straightened them up as much as possible, removed tree ties where they were no longer needed, weeded around the base of the trees and mulched them with bark chippings, and they're looking a lot better now.  If you live on Bradford Road and there is one of our trees outside your house, maybe you'd like to help us by generally keeping an eye on it, and letting us know if there are any problems with it.  We may be able to plant a few more trees along here in the future.
