Since initial meanderings and separate to the Bellway decimation and token replanting, further inquiries have been made into trees for the street. The council will be planting the trees in front of Bellway site and seem to be open to trees elsewhere down the road. The Hackney Arboricultural Officer Thomas Campbell said:
“Please see attached the list of species that we currently use in Hackney which if any residents have preferences we can take into consideration when formulating a prospective planting programme. If any of your neighbours would like to suggest species from the list it would be very helpful if you could amalgamate and send me a list of preferences.”
