100 trees felled because they are not native in Victoria Park
WHEN it was announced that a grant had been awarded for the restoration of Victoria Park, no one could have imagined that this would entail the destruction of more than 100 trees because they were not a native variety, (facts and figures given by member of Friends of Victoria Park).
No thought it seems has been given to the timing of this destruction.
Being spring all the wild life on the pond are getting ready to nest, but as the ground cover and several of the trees have been destroyed there is no where for them to go.
Is this restoration? It seems more like annihilation and wanton waste.
