Please remove casing from tree

This lovely tree has been planted in our estate garden which is only accesable by residents. Please remove the wire mesh and watering tunnel - it is not necersary. We have planted trees here and we look after them. It just doesn't look nice and serves no purpose.

  • Dear resident,

    Cages are installed on young trees planted within housing estates due to the high frequency of dog damage occurring to young trees across hackney, on estate land. I appreciate the cage is unsightly and this is an enclosed space, however the cage is still serving an important purpose and until the tree reaches a size where the cage is too small and causing a problem it will remain on the tree.

  • Such a shame you make this generalised statement anonymously. You have ignored the particulars in my report. The only dog out there is my puppy. What damage can she do, if I allowed it? I water the plants, I tend to the cleaning, along with our lovley cleaner. We discuss the garden, we, the tenants, have planted our own tree and plan more. You have such a dated view of estate gardens. Come aand look at ours, you will understand why your comments are irrelivent and even insulting.
