Today saw the planting of two more fruit trees in DKH Open Space to replace two trees that had been vandalised. The replacement trees are: a Vranja Quince (half standard) and a King Damson (half standard). The damson can grow fine in a bit of shade so it’s nearest to the mature trees. The quince is on the opposite side, near the oak trees. Both of these have been planted further away from the path than before to deter passersby from snapping the branches.
Both trees were kindly donated by Cllr Stephen Govier and have been dedicated to well-loved pets and friends.
