What is new in High Street today?
This is worth seeing! The council planted “Pin Oaks,” if my memory is correct, in 1995-96??? They have become huge – over 15 meters high, they obscure the frontages, are messy, untrimmed and they drop leaves and acorns every where, as well as dripping a sticky sap all over your vehicles and making the buildings dark and dingy. I am not a fan!
They “unfortunately” needed to be removed, along with the verandahs so that the Peebles Group can prop the facades of the 8 units that they own. he he…. and hopefully they can replant a more suitable tree this time. The continued CCC obsession with English oaks baffles me. (Trees on one side of the street only is the answer! The other side if I have my way. Which is unlikely. I must have a word to Mr Peebles…)
Why would you obscure such a beautiful frontage with such massive trees?
I guess you could call this progress!
