There are many plants and trees that will grow near salt water, some are very environmentally friendly taking carbon out of the atmosphere.

There is no way that the borough council should take the tree guards away but find a tree that will grow with salt water if someone there could be bothered to go on to Google and do some research. There are lots of trees that will grow with salt water; they should not be allowed to give up on this.

Give us the tree lined South Quay we deserve which would look fantastic. Many new people are renovating the houses on South Quay and Daniel Defoe said this was one of the finest quays in Europe and it could be again if the council do their bit and put back the trees.

If money is the problem these trees could be easily sponsored.
