Tree felling goes against green tag

I RECENTLY saw a photograph of our Lord Mayor, Arthur Dunworth, helping the pupils of Shooter's Grove to plant trees.

As a lover of trees and firm supporter of encouraging children to value their environment I applaud this action.

What I do find deplorable is the fact that in the next valley, in Mr Dunworth's own constituency, the City Council have a licence to fell 2800 trees (yes, 2800) without any pretence that they will be replaced.

How is that for a carbon footprint and an example to our children?
