Nanny's Tree Hugging Tendancies
It would seem that the good councillors of Cambridge City care more about trees than children.
The council want to ban nursery children (aged 2-4) from playing under a 30 year old cedar, to safeguard the tree from damage.
Cambridge City Council prepared a report into the health of the tree at the Under Fives Roundabout Pre-School in Cambridge. The report concluded that the tree will suffer if the ground is "poached and compacted" by "constant activity" which could stop water reaching the roots.
The report says:
"Ideally, the children would not be able to play beneath the tree."
How heavy can a bunch of 2-4 year olds really be?
Here's a radical thought, if the tree really does end up being damaged (highly unlikely I think), why not just plant a new one somewhere else?
