Our property backs onto a community woodland which has undertaken the planting of hundreds of sapling trees to one day create an established wood. No problem with that but there are three houses (of which ours is one) whose back garden borders this wood.
Several saplings have been planted which include oak a distance of 2-5 metres away from the back fences of the three properties. This is surely not very sensible. I realize that not all the saplings will take and that trees take several years to establish but we intend to stay where we are for the next 30 years and don't want trees in excess of several feet less than 15 metres from our house.
A neighbour has said that only low level shrubs were supposed to be planted where the saplings have and concerns that they voiced at the time were ignored.
I wondered if anyone had any advice before i voiced my concerns to the Group.
