Trees in the Meadows

Some have expressed concern about the loss of 32 trees in the Meadows in the last year.  Three were blown down by storms and most of the remainder were lost to Dutch elm disease.   Hardly any replacements are due this year - though two will be planted by the organisers of the Taste festival.

These losses need to be put into context.  The Meadows and Bruntsfield Links has over 1150 trees and in recent years there has been replanting - though not as many as have been lost.
