Trees being planted in front of the buildings at the Pier Head replacing the ones that were there before the building work started .
GD. i was in the exact same place on Saturday morning, very wet and muddy it was
Loverly.. ta for the pic..
Anybody know what species the new ones are? There was some talk when the old ones were felled that, being a Canadian species- a tribute to the Canadian troops who passed through here- they were not thriving in the Pier Head's salt air and would have had to be replaced anyway.
The replacements are of a good size I note and should soon look very nice when they come into leaf. Let's just hope the knobhead vandals don't get to them first.

Nice to see them back. Like you, I remember the council saying that the original Canadian ones didn't thrive there but I can't remember if they said what ones they would use instead.
I seem to remember that the new Maple Trees are to be from Norway.
