One of the ways to combat global warming is to plant more trees. Richard and Trish have been responsible for getting the Council to plant many trees in our Ward, some to replace trees that were lost to disease but many new trees. Trees absorb carbon dioxide and pollution, and pump out oxygen. Sutton is amongst the leaders among the 32 London boroughs in the number of street trees per yard of pavement. This contributes to the pleasant, green, suburban atmosphere of the area we all so much enjoy, though it creates a headache every autumn when the leaves fall.
This planting activity has included trees in:
Upland Road – outside 18, 20, 39. 103
Camborne Road – outside 47/49, 32/34
Effingham Close – 17, 26
Langley Park Road – opposite 91 Egmont
Devonshire Road – outside the school
The Ridgway – 18, 59
Christchurch Park – one outside, and one opposite, White Lodge Close.
