    there's loads more coming down further up the parks through roath mill to brook gardens, all along the brook.

    Hope its true about WG, but so sad that they plan to pull so many more down. :(

    the tree people have now marked all the condemned trees as per the plan through roath brook and roath mill gardens with a jaunty red cross :/ in good news there's one that i marked that may not be going after all. otherwise i think my tagging's been pretty accurate - the whole clump in the corner of raoth mill by the zebra crossing has gone now :(

    as for the ribbons in waterloo gardens i have no idea where that info's come from. it certainly isn't marked on the planning maps i've been using. will ask around...

    I joined the FB group but it annoyed me straight away. Some very passive aggressive person complaining about the wrong types of bows and marks on the trees.

    i was directed to the fb group to ask about the ribbons in wg, but i'm a fb refusenik. Supine does anyone say where the info came from about further felling?

    i haven't been down that end of the park in months. looks like i should keep avoiding it the state it looks in the vid :(

    where are they planning to plant the trees on the rec? the pitches seem to be relatively well used from what i see...

    1927 Funnier than he thinks he is.

    I dont know who the councillors are for that area, but can someone tell us if they have been active in doing anything about this. I’m assuming they may be Tory and keen to do anything to oppose WAG initiatives.

    They're all LibDem and have supported the protests. The Tories at Assembly level inc. Andrew RT Davies have asked questions supportive of the protests in the Assembly, as has Neil McEvoy (Plaid Cymru).

    Yes it was - it was a Wales champion tree as well. Best way to keep up is the goings on is to follow @RoathBrookTrees on Twitter

    Protestors managed to halt felling again today, despite Hannah Blythyn (the Environment Minister) refusing to meet residents yesterday, and telling NRW to go ahead.
    Nearing 5000 signatures now.

    They'd fenced the end closest to the rec off and done at least a tree there saying it was unsafe

    The local protest group accepted that tree was diseased. No felling at all again today thanks to protestors' presence.
