Glass bells on the route home from the pubs to Malling - lasting a month ? I'll give them a week tops. What a waste of 30K

Probably just to stop the delicate trunks being kicked to death by footballs etc as they're often used as goalposts. Haven't actually seen them so i'll look next time i walk past.

They are tree protection stakes. To stop mowers and strimmers damaging the trees. Normal in municiple parks, gardens etc.

Top Tip to council lawn mower operatives. I often used to encounter problems when I didnt notice the tree in the middle of my lawn when I was mowing or strimming, and even considered getting some stumps put around it myself. Then I tried opening my eyes and steering around it. I have since found this to be a simple yet effective solution to the problem, which incidentally also works with flower beds and sheds.

Tractor mowers etc are a bit harder to be accurate and if there are exposed roots / base of trunk hidden by grass; then it is best not to slice bits off. Not that stupid as it sounds and protecting nice trees is a good idea.
