The trees in central reservation are all dead from lack of proper watering schedule

Reported via mobile in the Fallen tree across road or pavement category anonymously at 12:13, Tue 6 April 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2655399.

These poor trees are all dead. Had hoped for some meagre sign of growth , but no, they are dead! As mature trees when planted, they must have cost hundreds, if not thousands of £££ all together in an attempt to make the London Road a green & pleasant land! Now that the emission zone is in place, can they be replaced?? I don’t think they were ever watered or cared-for.
