On the 26th June 2012 a tree was felled on open land in a picturesque market town in Cumbria UK. A further tree nearby had its branches removed and later felled. The trees were part of many in the area and one of them was at least (estimated) fifty feet tall and had been used by nesting rooks a few weeks earlier. I contacted the Council regarding this and later received a voice mail explaining that the trees were damaging an adjacent property. I later received a letter from the Council stating that they hadn’t given any instructions regarding the trees and are awaiting a response from the Housing association who own the land. The reasons for the fellings were unclear they stated and it was being investigated.
