Tree Works - Autumn 2015

Horse Chestnuts felled

A blow to the Green was the sudden felling just before Christmas of the remaining horse chestnut trees along the northern boundary. The Council planted these trees 100 years ago to beautify the Green when it took it over for public recreation. Standing up to 40 metres, they became an icon for Ealing and all that it stood for. FoHG knew the trees were unhealthy but we were told they would not be removed until seven replacement semi-mature London planes or sweet chestnuts were planted and established themselves.  In the event much smaller hornbeam saplings have been planted, some of which at least have died, we think for lack of attention.
