Anyone who has needed tree work done will have discovered that it is an expensive business. For example, the felling and stump grinding of a large dying cherry tree in Ethelburt Avenue cost £720 (incl. VAT) earlier this year. The cost of this work was met from the Ethelburt Avenue Repair and Maintenance Fund. The Residents’ Association has agreed to pay for a replacement tree.

The Residents’ Association is happy to make a contribution to the cost of tree work in the communal areas, but its annual subscription (£4) is not geared to meeting every large payment that might arise.
