Cardiff Council planting trees? They’re chopping them down in the Northern Meadows


I have just seen issue 61 of Whitchurch and Llandaff Living and two pieces drew my attention.

The first story says that the Cardiff Council are going to plant a zillion trees, which they say are ‘an essential component of our urban ecosystems.’


But this is barmy because the Council also intend to chop down 600 trees in the Northern Meadows. It beggars belief! 

Additionally, in your article about winter walks you are quoting distances in kilometres. I did not know that the mile had been discarded. Perhaps it is part of a subtle propaganda plot to get revenge for Brexit. Miles please not km!
