If it's a red route e-mail me email@example.com and I'll let you know. He's a contact that has done me a few favours over the years in not destroying guerrilla gardens around SE1 but doesn't want to be publicly thanked or occasionally shamed for his somewhat enthusiastic but unreliable approach to tree planting.
I'm more than happy to declare that I am the Arboriculture & Landscape Manager/Tree Man/Ignoramus/Bright Spark responsible for the trees and landscape for TfL in central London, including Bricklayers Roundabout. My name is John Parker, my email address is [email protected] and I am always prepared to explain any of my actions, however enthusiastic or unreliable they might be. I'm not planning to get involved in a public debate in this forum so please don't take offense if I don't answer future posts. However, you now all have my email address and I look forward to hearing from you. I'll be heading down to Bricklayers this morning to investigate the reports of dead trees and will do what I can to resolve the situation.
Hi John. Brilliant to see your contribution here and a serious thank you for a lot of what you do. The meadows at Bricklayers are amazing and the many new plane trees in St George's Road, despite their tiny tree pits, are thriving.
Oh dear - looks like we're not having much luck with those trees. The replacements for the first set of dead trees are themselves in the process of dying. Bricklayers Arms roundabout is defying all attempts at its beautification, the stubborn beast...
