Locals appeal plan to fell 1930s trees over wheelchair access
Residents of Glasnevin in north Dublin have appealed to Dublin City Council not to fell 90-year-old trees that the local authority said are living in a “hostile environment”.The council plans to fell the mature lime trees on St Canice’s Road following complaints from a wheelchair user in relation to the condition of the footpath surrounding the trees and the difficulties in access which the trees cause.However, residents said the trees could be retained if the council repaired and properly maintained the footpaths.
