Representatives from Bury in Bloom, the Bury St Edmunds branch of the Royal Artillery Association (Gunners) and St Edmundsbury Borough Council attended the planting on Thursday, November 30.

The hornbeam replaced a previous tree which had died last year and landscaping company Pro-Scape cleaned out the tree pit and filled with new compost.

Jos Bird, from the Gunners, approached Bury in Bloom to replace the tree and the town’s horticultural organisation paid for the tree and its installation as part of its 30 trees project to celebrate its 30th anniversary.

Bob Ewington, secretary of the Bury St Edmunds branch of the Royal Artillery Association, said: “We are delighted the hornbeam has been replanted and would like to thank all involved.
