A Tree is lost

Sadly the battle to save this beautiful tree was lost on Monday and yesterday it was felled. At least those who passed earlier this week were able to admire it draped in snow for the last few days of its life.  Councillors questioned the Developers closely about why it had to be felled but it was clear that they had been put in an impossible position as the tree had not been properly protected at the initial planning stage.  The Westcombe Society Environment hope that lessons will be learnt for the future.
