I've noticed that a lot of the trees in Barrows Hartington St are being cut down, but I nearly choked when I read the reason they give for doing this. They say that the trees are not evenly spaced, and are not all the same size. I can't believe they are wasting money on replanting fresh trees, even if they will be evenly spaced on what must be one of the worst maintained roads in the town. The speed bumps are worn out and falling apart, and deep potholes are every few yards, and since this street is being used as a major road diversion a lot more traffic passes through, wearing it out even quicker. But still as we scrape and bounce along, at least we will soon have the evenly spaced trees to admire.
