Cash helps plant a green future
City streets have gone green after a cash boost.
More than 30 new trees have been planted in the St Michael’s ward in grass verges on and around Queen Alexandra Road in Ashbrooke/Grangetown.
The cost, £2,500, has been funded by the Council’s east area community leaders’ programme.
Coun Peter Wood said: “Gradually more and more trees have been cut down in the ward, due to disease etc, but not replaced - the council having no specific budget for tree replacement.
“The ward councillors thought it would be a good idea to use some of the money from the community leaders’ programme to start replacing some of the ward’s lost trees.”
The streets are: Newlands Avenue, Bainbridge Avenue, Thornhill Park, Sea View Road, Linden Road, Victoria Avenue West, Queen Alexandra Road and Wallingford Avenue.
