When Dublin City Council removed the wonderful Plane Trees, while renovating the street 10 years ago, they promised everyone that the trees would be replaced and replanted. This was the promise they gave. Now most of the trees that they planted then have either been removed or had died. This happens in silence. Across at College Green they have removed trees to facilitate gas pipe laying, trees are being removed to facilitate the new Luas line and, and, and. New plantings will not work so these trees will not be replaced.
