Spruce trees in Meriden

In Meriden, along the Fillongley Road, behind the shops, are a number of spruce trees that hold litter when blown by the wind or dropped by people. One tree has had the lower branches removed and is no problem at all. It is tidy and no rubbish or weeds underneath. Can the lower branches in the other trees be cut too, so that it is weed and litter free also. When I complained previously it was said that if they were removed that people would park underneath. That is nonsense as no one parks in that area or under the one that is already pruned. There are broken branches among these trees and branches that look very insecure and will be dangerous in a strong wind. We regularly collect litter in that area and when we went by recently there is rubbish accumulated yet again. Please either remove these lower branches or make more regular weed and litter pickups.

  • Bottom branches need pruning out to enable litter to be collected.
