I can't find any news on this at all - Monday AM - a number of Xmas trees were dumped along Cliffe High St. Was it a protest? In the name of art? Or just drunk idiots? Anyone?

The other day I noticed few of my neighbours left their Christmas trees outside their houses and the next day they had all gone.
I assumed there was a recycling facility.
Could be wrong though.

Hi - as you may know I live in Cliffe High St. On Sunday night I heard the sound of object being dragged and the sounds of (teenagers) laughing. I didnt bother to look out of my front window. Anyone who lives in a High St will know that looking out of the window at night usually leads to some kind of disaster - witness statements etc.
The next morning many Xmas trees had been scattered across the pavement. I therefore deduce that teenagers + sniggering laughter + (alcohol) = xmas trees having been dragged from the recycling point in the car park to Cliffe High St. Nothing more than a prank. (Tee Hee) or should that be Tree Hee?

It was a strange image, I grant you that. Was it art?

I overheard the man from May's saying it was some sort of protest. They were a bit too neatly and strategically placed to be pissed teenagers I think...

Maybe May's and Bill's could have recycled them and sold them again !
I know our tree looked very healthy with little needle drop when Rotary collected it - seemed such a waste of a tree.

Surely if it was a protest, the protesters should make the purpose of their protest known? Tim from May's seemed to think it was a protest about them specifically selling cut-trees.
However why target only May's? Why not Bill's, The Volunteer pub and the various other places that were selling cut-trees. And why protest after they've been sold? Surely protesting as they are sold would be more effective? Or is it a "look at all these trees wasted now it's past time to have them decorated"?
It's bit of a pointless protest if it is, since all cut-trees come from plantations that are grown a) specifically for this purpose and b) sustainably grown. The trees are then recycled and used for other purposes.

A few times now I've seen a whole load of large black plastic bags dumped along the street, is this another protest? They seem to disappear by the end of the day.

It was no protest, just a little forest for the early starters!
shame it was cut to the ground before being fully apreciated.
