I wrote this post back in December.
The tree in the picture was planted in winter last year.
I went back and had a look yesterday and NOTHING had changed.
The stakes were still on that angle, the ties still wonky, the grass still strangling the tree…clearly no one has been near it since the day it went in.
Yet a whole bunch of new street trees have just been planted in the area this winter!
Can you see what's happening?
We're not looking after the trees we've planted yet we keep planting more!
