Another street tree bites the dust

tree snapped off york way

Sadly yet another tree has been broken off on York Way.  This one has been mainly sawed off at chest height and the top of the tree dumped in Railway Street.  Not clear what happened here whether it was a determined vandal with a saw or someone knocked it with a vehicle and then someone sawed it off.   The local community has done a lot over the years to support and pay for street trees in this highly urban environment and it’s always sad to see another go.  I counted quickly at least three decapitated trees on York Way – as we are in the planting season they could be replaced. Does the council have any funds left for this sort of thing – maybe something from local S106-as-was money?

  1. I would be happy to contribute to planting replacement trees, also in Camden.

  2. This is very bad indeed. It may still be in-season to replace these sharpish. I’ll give it a go.
