Woodman, don’t spare that tree

I have updated my recent post about the overgrowth of trees on the Shannon–Erne Waterway to welcome today’s news that “tree trimming and hedge cutting will be carried out at various locations on the Shannon-Erne Waterway” between September 2018 and February 2019.

I hope that “trimming” is a polite understatement and that the trees will be cut right back to, or beyond, the edge of the waterway.

  1. Sounds like you need the crew that did the Royal Canal around Kildare, otherwise known as ‘Slash and Burn’. Agent Orange also springs to mind…

  2. Don’t be bringing politics into this …. bjg

  3. I wouldn’t call it politics…. more like urban warfare! ;-)

  4. Agreed need cutting back
