To be honest Fisher, you're not bothered about saving a few trees, you're just another keyboard warrior who just wants to bollox things up for everyone else.
They'll plant more trees, get over it.

Poplars aren't the nicest trees - they can make a mess with the seeds they grow really tall and bits of varying size fall off them. If you want a nice avenue that will last and be a pleasure - plant limes.

Blakes Walk is a delightful tree lined feature of Malling. Why spoil it folks?! Do yourselves a favour and start thinking about protecting natural habitats around Lewes! End of.

Farmer Palmer, the trees are less then 20 years old, they were planted when they built Mayhew way. To build Mayhew Way, they had to demolish other areas of greenery, including a very old Horse chestnut where the old tip used to be (I'm Malling born and bred)
They'll plant more trees, things move on, get used to it.

To repeat myself, as my last post has disappeared, I live near these poplars and walk under them every day. I can't say I've ever noticed what you mentioned.

I had a row of them along my garden - that's where I base my observation. We had to loose one that I thought was OK but the tree surgeon said no. I must admit bias towards limes as I used to walk the Lime Avenue in Buxted. The '87 storm felled most of them and yet they survive and grow, lying on their sides !

Just after I moved into the house I mentioned, a magnificent Oak was felled across the lane outside. I was too late to do anything, it was taken down because it was allegedly affecting the foundations of houses nearby (social housing) I know for a fact the houses were built in the late 70's and the tree was mature then, so the founds should have been deep enough - but ? If I had prior knowledge I would have done my utmost to get a preservation order on it, it was on a piece of land that had no registered ownership. We would all do well to support the Woodland Trust, a very good charity.

I'm sad to not be on your book shelf amongst the great works of D.Icke or L. Ron Hubbard et al. more
