Tree planting along the River Ness
Next week 16 lime trees and a number of shrubs will be planted along the route of the River Ness Flood Alleviation Scheme.
Limes are deciduous broadleaf trees, native to the UK. Their leaves are heart-shaped and their flowers provide nectar and pollen for insects, particularly bees.
The tree planting will take place along Huntly Street, Gilbert Street and Anderson Street. In addition, the planters located in front of the Mercure Hotel on Bank Street will be filled and a holly hedge will be planted at Friar’s place. Some additional turf laying work will also take place.
The contractor Brandon Landscaping Ltd will be on site next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and the Council will be working closely with them to ensure any temporary disruption for road users and pedestrians is kept to a minimum.
