We have had a couple of questions regarding why the trees are not currently being installed along with the raised tables as discussed during the design and consultation process. There are two main reasons for this – firstly, we need to buy the trees in bulk (to save money) and the council has no storage capability to hold onto the trees during construction phase. Secondly, we will be using a different tree-specific contractor team to install the trees and therefore (for both logistical and financial reasons) it is better to give them a concentrated list of works. Finally, the tree guards are in the process of being made and we cannot install the trees until this process is complete. Therefore, we estimate that we will be moving ahead with the installation of the trees at some point in February – which is also a good time for planting.
Should anyone have any further questions please get in touch.
