Marlow’s Mayor Richard Scott, in his capacity as a District Councillor, has used part of his ward budget to have six new Prunus trees planted in Lock Road.
“I’m delighted to be able to provide new trees for the town, as part of our Releaf Marlow project,” Cllr Scott said. “Lock Road has suffered the loss of some of its trees, and we’re hoping that the new ones will soon provide shade, environmental benefits and harbour for wildlife. Hopefully this will be the first of many new trees to grace our streets over the coming months and years.”
Releaf Marlow aims to increase the number of trees along Marlow’s streets, in open spaces, and in hedgerows as part of the #sustainablemarlow initiative launched by Marlow Town Council in July. It is a joint project by Marlow Town Council and local community group Transition Town Marlow and is supported by an enthusiastic group of volunteer residents.
