Tree Surgeons at Work


Tree Surgeons at work

For those Milman Road residents backing on to the New Christ Church primary school playing field there was some different entertainment last week between the downpours.

Instead of the usual wildlife, we had Reading Borough Council’s Arboricultural team (tree surgeons) climbing and trimming the poplar trees.  It was truly amazing to see a man over 100 feet up a tree, cutting the branches and dropping them, with sublime accuracy, to his waiting colleagues below. This is the first time in over 10 years that maintenance has been carried out on these trees.
