  • The young Silver Birch trees at Farrington Gurney are being watered. We have dedicated Team out watering all new highway trees as part of the Council’s weekly tree watering schedule, which has been active since late spring and will continue through until October. Unfortunately, we are currently in a prolonged dry spell and have had a period of unprecedented very hot weather, which is putting extra stress on the trees. We understand the local community are helping to water these trees where possible which is fantastic and we welcome this. Used bath water or even dirty dish water can be used for watering these trees, and a more sustainable option.
