Rotten Borough

Kingston Council's works to fell many of the iconic poplar trees along Malden Green is continuing - and has generated a healthy debate here on the blog. 

'Coffee Man' has e-mailed me this picture of one of the felled trees and it you don't have to be a brain (or tree) surgeon to see that the tree was not in the best of condition, which appears to support Kingston Council's decision to take down the tree on safety grounds. 

That said, other blog readers have reported spotting felled trees that looked to be in a healthy state.

Keep the photographic evidence coming!
