If A Tree Falls

Tree Removal Order
Tree Removal Order

It’s Saturday afternoon and I’m feeling a little sad.

Only a few minutes ago I walked out onto my balcony and noticed a sign on one of the trees across the road. I knew instantly that it was going to be a tree removal order. And not just one, but three.

I’m lucky enough to live in a street with some beautiful big, and admittedly, old trees. They’re a pain in the arse during autumn and winter when they lose their leaves. But in summer, they come to life, and make the street in which I live a truly beautiful place to be. They also provide shade for the nearby children’s playground. And I guess that’s where the concern comes from – that one day they’ll fall over and cause injury.

Thankfully, the trees on my side of the street will remain, and thankfully they’ll be replaced. Still, I’m feeling a little sad.
