DAMAGE IN CHARLOTTE SQUARE GARDENS

A new visual assessment looking at the current condition of 49 trees in Charlotte Square Gardens has found that ‘continued instances of inappropriate cultural practices’ are causing damage.

The harms include: alteration of soil structure, physical wounding of surface roots through turf maintenance, and physical damage to a significant number of trees’ roots and stems.
