by Ian Yuill on 2 August, 2019

After I called for action, Aberdeen City Council has agreed to replace dead and missing street trees on a number of roads in our area.

The roads where trees are now due to be replaced during the planting season later this year are:

  • Aboyne Road
  • Balmoral Place
  • Craigievar Crescent
  • Hammerfield Avenue
  • Hammersmith Road
  • Inchbrae Drive
  • Kaimhill Circle
  • Morningside Avenue

I have asked for street trees to be replaced on other streets in our area and will report back on that once I have more information.

Please do let me know about any missing or dead street trees in our area.

    Hi Ian! Just noticed the central division on South Anderson Drive is in one hell of a state of weeds etc. And why haven’t they filled in all the bare patches? Over to you!

    • Ian Yuill says:

      The Central reservation is not in a good condition. Years of neglect by Transport Scotland and their contractors has taken its toll. Responsibility for the road and the central reservation transferred to the council in April and I have already raised the condition of the central reservation with council staff. I am due to meet the senior manager responsible within the next couple of weeks and will be discussing this with him.

  2. As there is currently a drive due to global warming to plant
    trees to safe guard our and future generations I would request that the missing trees on Thorngrove Avenue and Seafield Road ( opposite Doctors Surgery ) be replaced .
    On the Avenue it would mean removing the tarmac patching
    placed when the trees were removed .

    Dear Mr Yule. Thank you so much for your action on the issue of trees. When we moved to Hutchison Terrace about 38 years ago it was a beautiful tree lined street. You will know what it looks like now! As Mr Pettit says we should be considering the environment for future generations. I would certainly welcome the return of trees to Hutchison Terrace.

    I have mentioned this before, the tree on the pavement ,outside the block 26 to 32 Ruthrieston Crescent , roots have raised the pavement splitting the tarmac. This was relayed 2 years back and has happened again .The tree roots need cutting back or tree removed.
    I spent a considerable sum of money tarring my drive and parking area , if this is not rectified ! The roots will run into my drive and the bill will be given to Aberdeen council

    We have at least one missing tree and one dead tree on Northcote Crescent and would appreciate anything you could do to get new trees planted.

    Ian, thanks for your efforts !
    In the summer of 2017 a number of dead trees were removed around Morningside Avenue and Morningside Gardens and replaced with traffic cones.
    Then in 2018 all the cones (?) disappeared – at least a new planting ‘frame’ thing was installed at the side of our house but as yet no tree.
    Hopefully this autumn all the old tree spaces will be replanted.

      As it happens, earlier this summer I raised the issue of the missing street trees on Morningside Avenue and Morningside Gardens. I have recently received a reply saying that at least some of these should be replaced by the end of this year.
