Tree Removal

To allow the development of the new sports centre we need to remove some trees from the site. We plan to recycle the wood. Some will be used to create furniture, fittings and toys for local nurseries but we are keen to commission some items of furniture or external features near Meadowbank. Send your suggestions to

You can view images of furniture created using recycling wood.

Overall more trees will be planted on the wider site than are removed.
