They culled the pigeon population in Trafalgar Square because it got out of control. With no predators and abundant scraps it can quickly get out of hand.

Not to mention that bird shit is a bit threat to the city's stonework and statues.

The flowerbeds just seem so unnecessary. They take up too much space, they'll be lifeless in the winter and before long they'll be stamped on/strewn with litter.

If they are so wary about having tree roots interfering with street infrastructure then use planters instead.

We need to have realistic expectations here. Keep things simple.
