The Society has a special interest in these silver maple trees as they were donated and planted by Society members in 1980. A member living opposite became concerned recently that possible future closure of the station might result in the loss of the trees. We enquired of the National Park Authority, now responsible for Tree Preservation Orders, and discovered that they were unprotected. We are pleased to report that as a result there are now Tree Preservation Orders on all the trees in front of and beside the Police Station. We are grateful to the member who drew our attention to the situation.
