The Message of the Trees

North Street is known to have high levels of pollution.  
The two trees above have been struggling for years. The furthest one has been replaced at least once. Perhaps, once they have managed to lift their crowns above the worst pollution, which we have to breathe, they will do better.

The Clock Tower. 
Trees of shorter habit do not have the option of growing out of the worst pollution and eventually succumb. The nearest one, arguably in the worst pollution died last year. It looks as if the furthest one is suffering the same fate.

Western Road
Wider, traffic-restricted Western Road has smoother traffic flow and all the trees are doing better. The specimen illustrated has been heavily pruned at least once.
