UL saves trees ahead of commencement of library extension

The construction of the second phase of the UL library is due to commence shortly. In advance of the nesting season (and these works starting) the Buildings and Estates Department brought in a tree balling machine to save three trees from being felled – i.e. two Copper Beech trees and one Pine tree.

Extracting the Copper Beech trees…
