A new tree has been planted today, Friday, December 22 on the roadside green in Coney Hall for Tree Friends and local residents to decorate in time for Christmas.

The Serbian spruce, which looks like a traditional Christmas tree, was planted by Gristwood and Toms, as part of the council’s annual planting programme.

The tree will be cared for by the council, along with the approximate 36,000 other street trees, with support for this particular tree, and others in the area being given by the Tree Friends of the Wickham Common Residents Association.

Councillor William Huntington-Thresher, executive councillor for environment, said: “Tree Friends have been working hard in this local area, which has made a real difference to how the trees look, ultimately, helping them to remain healthy.

“The council does have a tree maintenance programme and over the past two years, we have also planted close to 1,500 new and replacement trees too.

“There are many more Friends of Parks members or Street Friends but we are grateful for the support our magnificent Tree Friends have shown, which has helped maintain the health of the street trees which do so much to make our streets look attractive.”

Councillor Huntington-Thresher added: “It was disappointing for local people that a tree planted just year ago was taken away by someone and if anyone does know what happened, we will take action. But, we cannot allow the actions of an individual to undermine the good work of the many and we are hopeful that the tree planted today will reach maturity and will form part of the memory of Christmas for generations to come, as they decorate it each Christmas and care for it all year round.”
