I don't need to remind people that we have so far had a severe winter and the greenery that has been removed provided valuable shelter for native and over-wintering migrant birds as well as small mammals.
It would also have provided cover for hibernating animals too.
I'm not going to go on about global warming as this is open to debate but one of the easiest ways to reduce carbon in the atmosphere is via trees ,bushes and shrubs that remove carbon dioxide from the air and convert in to oxygen that we all need by photosynthesis.
I wonder who commissioned the work, who was contracted and how much was paid, because the damage done in my eyes to create the eyesore that exists now was not worth one penny.
