Tree Care Programme (TCP) Update November 2017

We are pleased to confirm that the 5 year TCP which has been ongoing in Marley Estate, is now completed, with the final few trees crown lifted in the last few weeks. This phased programme which was instigated in 2012, by MGRA in conjunction with The Parks Section, of DLRCC involved the Crown Lifting (pruning) of the 500-600 trees in the Estate, together with the removal of approx. 77 trees which were either diseased and dangerous, or considered too large and unsuitable for a housing estate. In general, when trees were removed, replacement saplings were planted by Parks within the Estate.

The benefits which have resulted from this TCP, means more effective street lighting, less leaves to be swept up, reducing the clogging up of road gullies; and a reduction in damage to underground services and footpaths by tree roots.

    I would appreciate if you could contact Marlay Park with a view to having the tree outside 9 Marley Walk pruned back. It has grown very tall and I believe may present a hazard . Many thanks. Eleanor 014939475
