GAG News Bulletin 12 (July 2017)
GAG is monitoring the health of the Boulevard St. Brieuc trees and the new plantings along Park Avenue which form a progression of Coed Aber into town.
A talk has been given at Penmorfa by our chairman to Ceredigion CC officers from the Ecology, Parks and Gardens and Highways Departments.
This has proved a great success. The leaflets are still available in the TIC. A recent Botany Society walk was led along much of this trail.
Following the success of the Tree Trail, GAG has been awarded a grant from Aberystwyth Town Council for tree labels to be put on selected trees along Plascrug Avenue. This will serve both the identification interest generated by the Tree Trail and an educational aspect for schools. An accompanying bilingual worksheet will be written for school use.
An oak has been planted in a corner of the schoolís playing field and GAG is keen for that corner to be maintained as a small meadow/wildflower area. The oak was provided by CCC and sponsored jointly by GAG and the school PTA.
GAG is working on a summary of the management plan to be displayed together with appropriate photographs on the notice board in the Cemetery. This should help explain the leaving of some areas of long grass and illustrate the benefits of this to wildlife.
Doubtless you will be aware of the controversy concerning recent developments on the campus. GAG has requested a Tree Preservation Order to be placed on the group of pines near the Visualisation centre and edging the main road. These have great amenity value forming a well-loved line of trees when travelling up Penglais Hill. They also act as screening, giving some protection to students and staff from noise and pollutants
A meeting to discuss this with the University has been arranged.
