frown Was passing St Albans playground today, Wallasey, and noticed all the lovely trees that used to line the perimeter have been chopped down, leaving ugly stumps. You can actually see the trees theyve chopped in a container in the playground! Thats just cruel, birds might have been nesting or getting ready to nest in them. Just hope none of the little darlings impale themselves on the jagged stumps that theyve left behind when theyre playing out..... frown

When they first planted them they were like little christmas trees. Gradually over the years the top 3-4 foot was chopped of each tree presumably by someone wanting a cheap xmas tree. The last one had its top lopped off about 4 years ago. As they grew it left them looking like big christmas trees which had had their top cut off. Not a reason to get rid of them all though.

Always worried me that the kiddies in St Albans were subject to all the car and bus fumes as they played. The trees were at least a token gesture to cutting down the pollution.

Not so bad now that there is no lead in petrol. Like most schools close to a road they must have suffered years ago. There was a piece published not too long ago about the effect lead had on the learning and achievment of inner city kids.

You mean all that chewing on lead pipes could've been avoided if only I had mainlined the exhaust fumes of the taxi rank?

They shouldnt have cut the trees down, wonder what the reason was? Youre right.

roots were lifting the play area and the walk way outside the school so it was a health and saftey issue the trees that are left are the only trees that were nested in and removing them would have damaged the drain that service the houses and if you go passed now you will see there are new shrubs with less roots and in a few years they will be a screen for the children hope that answers your questions. not so old x caretaker

Could be worse, there used to be dead bodies beneath the school and playground.
