    New trees to replace aging poplars on Christchurch Meadows

    Six trees which run along the boundary of Christchurch Meadows overlooking George Street were felled to create an access route for machinery to build a new pedestrian and cycle bridge.

    Work has begun in Caversham to replace some of the Lombardy poplars removed in October to make way for the new pedestrian and cycle bridge.

    Six trees which run along the boundary of Christchurch Meadows overlooking George Street were felled to create an access route for machinery to build the new bridge.

    The row of trees is about 30 years old, nearing the end of their life. A new line of poplars will be planted in front of the existing row to allow the older trees to be felled.

    Further trees will be planted to create a new feature of 76 trees. A total of 34 poplars will be planted over the next few days with four more summer.

    The new bridge east of Fry’s Island between Caversham and Reading Bridges will link Caversham to the town centre and Reading Station.
