Ever wondered why street trees randomly sometimes seem to meet a sticky end? Wanstead historian Greg Roberts did (and got an answer, and gave a hot take in return).
Hello Greg, thanks for your message. I have looked into your inquiry, and when last inspected, 3 trees in King’s Avenue were identified as dead and had to be removed. You can also use the report it function online: https://t.co/wmQ3RTwXM5 so the team can confirm the work.— Redbridge Council (@RedbridgeLive) January 30, 2020
They are certainly dead now— greg roberts (@D_Profundis) January 30, 2020
Elsewhere in dead tree news, this formerly living stump on Elmcroft Ave has found a new vocation as an artisanal 100% organic rubbish bin, as patronised by at least one street drinker.
