    In that vein I’m appalled to see trees being cut down on Roscoes. If this is for the proposed cycle path it makes a mockery of cycling being eco friendly. Those trees were the “lungs” of that area, now cut down for a project no one wanted.

  2. I agree Alan nothing wrong with them trees, too many getting cut down lately especially on some of the houses in Gatley and Heald Green just to put more cars on the drive.

  3. Peter Rowley says:

    Sorry but I wanted this project to take place. If some drivers showed respect when driving and parked with due consideration to others it perhaps would not be necessary to complete this project.
    I agree that it is dreadful for any trees to be cut down. Having a look at the trees a number were self seeded Ash, some of other trees were not in great shape. Yes some were magnificent trees but the two for one replacement will keep a good balance of younger and mature trees

    This is an old chestnut (sorry) and if cyclists showed a bit more restraint and less gung ho…
    However cost to fell the trees, cost to buy and plant new trees- it’s all money.

      It’s a tragedy that mature trees in Abney Park are being cut down for a cycle path no-one wanted. Even if the mature trees are replaced with saplings they will take years to grow to the size of the trees removed. I thought Lib Dems were supposed to be eco friendly – prove it and stop this unnecessay wok

        Hi Lois,

        The trees are being replaced 2 for 1 by semi-mature trees 4-6m high, not saplings. But you’re right to raise the eco-friendly issue. Right now our air is polluted, our roads jammed with cars. We need to sort that out. Getting more people walking and cycling is an important part of that, and we know that high quality infrastructure and safe routes are essential to make that happen.

  5. Sharon Rolfe says:

    I am horrified at the amount of trees being felled, as has been said before, no one wanted this project. The fact that two are being planted to replace them is a nonsense, I for one won’t be around in forty years time to see them mature! All it needs is for EVERYONE to obey the rules of the road and we would get on fine.
