The mulch was removed from around the base of the Celebration Trees the day after putting the information on the St Neots Forum .
It is a shame that the mulch was only removed once I went public and that neither of the two Trustees present at the AGM 2014 had checked whether the verbal information they were given had any validity rather than dismissing it out of hand.
Personally I would have been more impressed if the Trustees could have come forward with evidence refuting that which I presented. At least it would have shown that things had changed and somebody was interested in researching good practice.
It is frustrating when I give information in good faith and am ignored until I substantiate my viewpoint.
