Probably not quite the right thread, but saw this on a local news site. How the councillor thought that willow could be affected by Ash dieback, and how she hasnt even done any research around the coppicing of willow to see its been done several times before on those trees is beyond me.

 

 

She added: "The real irony is that most of that section is in my division and I was the one who put forward the idea for the one million trees project."

 

The real irony is the fact she's getting any airtime whatsoever. Her comments throughout that article are incredibly ignorant and laughable! Was an amusing couple of minutes read even if it did make my blood boil a bit.

Dangerously close to election time - they're all at it grabbing whatever FaceTime they can.  Trouble is, many people seem incapable of spotting an oxygen thief even when they are standing right beside them.  

 

Willow Trees Matter....

Whats the history of the tree? Have carried out similar work to Beech trees in the past and its been due to the tips all dying back, fungi present etc etc. Was the tree in perfect health before or have you only seen the after shot?

Perfect heath before the reduction and only needed a clean out but unfortunately the owner wanted lest leaves to pick up. 

 

There was not a single cut that would have meet British Standards.
