Archers Drains and guess what? . . . "Trees"

Subject: Archers Drains and guess what? . . . "Trees"

Caught the Friday edition of the Archers whilst going
to sunny lLeyland. (Prunus padus - bad case of
Yponemeuta - Small / Bird Cherry Ermine, Ken . -This
is where the stems and leaves become covered with
whitish yellow caterpillars with a row of black dots
down each side of their bodies. Do these sound
familiar? Light infestations can be deal with by
pruning out the affected shoots.Otherwise your client
should spray the tree forcefully with a product
containing permethrin (Murphy Tumblebug). He should be
able to get this in any good garden centre. Tell him
to read and follow the label instructions carefully.)

I digress, Sorry!
The Archers have nasty trees attacking DRAINS and
ripping them apart!
I thought tree roots were opportunists and would
exploit moisture and invade where breaks and cracks
exist.
If others agree, can we get in touch with the story
editor @BBC R4 and get them to write in an Arborist in
bright shining armour who will save the tree and carry
off any damsels in distress? Let's have the blame put
fairly and squarely on those who broke the pipes
through subsequent building work.
