As I was on the Outer Ring Road, I saw the welcome sight of a tree being translocated.


It was good to see the tree being moved so carefully, with even its chopped branches bound up.


I do hope this tree, and several others like it, survive in their new “homes” and help keep our city green. A salute to those who are doing such work. I would like to know, however, what the averages are for the survival of such translocated trees.
