We have a manifesto commitment to plant more trees, to improve air quality, combat global warming and promote the green, suburban feel of Sutton. We plan 50 more trees in the Ward. We are searching for historic tree pits, now unused, and reporting them to Council officers. The list is growing. This one is in Hillcroome Road. Let us know of others you see.
We were delighted when, in accordance with the commitment to plant more trees to combat global warming, two new trees were planted earlier this year in The Ridgway. The story concerning the tree outside number 23 is interesting. Many years ago there was a tree pit here and a tree. The tree died. Contractors tarmaced over the tree pit. The tarmac would periodically sag. Richard suggested restoring the tree pit and planting a tree. This was done. The photo was taken during the brief fall of snow on 24 January.
