Godalming Conservatives are delighted that tree planting has now started in Broadwater Park by Waverley Borough Council.
They have planted one Mulberry, two Limes, two Cedars, one Plane and one Redwood (Wellingtonia) directly on or adjacent the old swimming pool site. In the parkland beyond, towards the rugby pitches, Waverley has planted a further Plane, two Oaks, one Redwood and one Walnut. In addition, rangers have also planted a further Oak, a Field Maple and a Turkish Hazel at the back of the new leisure centre, to provide continuation of tree cover and help soften the building when viewed from the South.
Local borough Councillor, Nick Williams commented: "I am delighted that these trees have been planted as agreed. These species were specially chosen for their appropriateness for hte historic parkland setting and examples of most of these can already be found in the park at present."
Fellow councillor, Ross Welland added: "I am pleased that these trees have been planted and under the Broadwater plans there will be further work carried out in the park, all of which has been agreed in the Broadwater Park Management Plan."
