… people are being attacked by trees in Swindon.*
A DOG-WALKER is worried for public safety after a second tree has come crashing down onto a path within two weeks… Mr Bennett is astonished the council has not acted to protect people from trees he thinks are suffering from dry rot.
The fallen tree comes just two weeks after Mr Bennett was featured in the Adver warning about the state of the trees following the fall of a large willow tree. He is amazed that no one was seriously injured or even killed, as the area is a popular spot with dog walkers and families…
A Swindon Council spokesman said: “We inspect trees that run alongside footpaths every three years and can find no record of problems with the willows in question….”
Every three years, huh? So he’s not heard about the deadly tree virus spreading to other species?
