Tree planting scheme at CLS Laudry

Posted by Micro Update Ltd on May 30, 2007

Dear Mr Edgcumbe
As promised, this is the latest report from TDC regarding the existing tree planting scheme at CLS Laundry.
I will forward to you a copy of any subsequent communication I receive from the Landscape Officer.

Dear Cllr Corney-Walker

I understand from John that you were enquiring about the existing tree planting scheme at CLS Laundry.

I visited the site on 18 April and drew up a schedule of works required to protect & maintain the tree planting, including replacement planting of dead/dying, damaged or poorly established trees. The schedule was sent to CLS on 19 April, but to date I have had no response from them. I have emailed their General Manager, Paul Pearson again today & unfortunately he is on holiday until next week.

As far as the maintenance is concerned (including watering, weed control etc) this should be carried out as a matter of urgency, if it has not been attended to. The replacement planting should be carried out in the autumn 2007.
The planting scheme is still at an early stage and is establishing. Overall, establishment has been good but some replacements are needed, along with ongoing maintenance.

Yours faithfully
Olwen Maidment
Landscape Officer
