  3. Good move. There's nothing like a tree to suck the carbon out of the air.

  4. Very good but it looks very close to the house facades. Hope they have space enough.

  5. Better trees in the street than cars.

  6. Poor things! No room for them to grow properly there, better they were in a park somewhere.

  7. I echo John's comments above. There whole root system is going to be beneath asphalt which is not going to permit water to get to it. I don't know whether you use road salt in Ireland but if you do the tree is going to be assaulted with that. If the tree lasts more than a couple of years I will be surprised. What a sham. Is this some token gesture designed to assuage the guilty conscience of some inept urban planner?

  9. Yes!!! Plant those trees everywhere so they can help clean the air that man seems to like to muck-up so much 🌲🌳🌴

  10. Are they planting the trees or the bus stop signs? You must have some very tall people where you live to have signs so big.

    God bless.

  13. I just came from a blog where they were cutting down trees so this is a good sign to see some being planted.

  16. Ha Bill, dat moet wel een hele gezellige straat gaan worden, groen doet het altijd goed, maar ja het vraagt wel onderhoud.
    Groet kees.

  20. That will be a wonderful addition. I know the birds, too, will enjoy the trees. Have a nice evening.

  21. Are they planting one type or a variety? We will need to see the finished product in the springtime if the spirit moves you that way.

    1. Good question, I didn't see any tags on the trees so I don't know what kinds of trees they are. When we go back to the town, I'll have to ask around.

  23. Wonder what trees are these. Hope they bring the birds singing too!

  24. I love trees and street trees are great as long as they don't choose a variety with roots that take over and buckle sidewalks. I do hope you'll revisit when they show some leaves.
