The Ferry Lane Willow Tree
This beautiful willow should have been given full protection before work started on this massive site on Ferry Lane Estate. Some people may remember its magnificence shading the pub as they walked or cycled along the towpath next to the river. As you can see from the picture(s) no care was taken and they hacked off great boughs because they were in the way of the building! This tree will become a 'nuisance tree' as it is too close to the building. How did the plans get through the planning process? The site is so massive allowing the tree just a bit more room would not have involved much less profit.
