Oh, fabulous news - the trees are saved. They are going to leave them just cut back as far as they have done already and not totally removed. I am sure that all the species that call it home would be very relieved.
As for planting a tree at the end of our garden to replace them, we gladly would. Except to grow a tree that big would probably take about 50 years and I have little doubt that I will be long dead by then. Hope you all have a smashing day.

You shouldn't be planting trees just for yourself - but for future generations.

Good to hear your neighbours aren't as greedy as you first thought.

As for not planting a tree because you won't personally benefit, I think that is a rather selfish attitude to take and smacks of double-standards.

Kind regards, Mac
PS what 'trees' are saved - you consistently referred to a single tree up until now?

Agree with Mac.

Hi arsie,

I think that is a wonderful proverb.
