Thirteen spots

Yellow spots spray painted on beech trees in Gledhow Valley Woods, Leeds

Gledhow Valley Woods, Leeds

Beech trees in the local woods, marked with yellow dots in a proposed felling plan. I think the spots are giving the trees stronger identities…

Recently someone has been out spray-painting in the woods. The graffiti takes the form of yellow dots on about 100 trees. It is possible that these trees will be felled this year in a Leeds city council private finance initiative. Allegedly, the council will not benefit from the sale of the timber. The reasons for the axing seem unclear and there is some strong local debate.

This painting is of three beeches on the slope overlooking the lake.
