Save our Trees!

Henbury residents may be aware that for a number of years one of our Parish Councillors (and Tree Warden) Simon Browne has been rallying teams of local volunteers to help plant new young hedges and trees throughout the Parish.

Now one of those newly planted areas is under threat, due to the proposed development of former Greenbelt land opposite the Cock Inn.

Simon has contacted Cheshire East to request that a Tree Preservation Order be applied to the young plantation. The trees were planted in 2013, and are maturing nicely now. They will form an excellent feature in the years ahead.

According to a recent Arboricultural Assessment, the tree group
"is species rich, in good condition and has the potential to form a valuable landscape and ecological feature within the site."

If you would like to support this proposal please email
trees@cheshireeast.gov.uk
stating that you wish to support the recent request of Henbury Parish Council to define a TPO for the plantation between Chelford Road and Whirley Road..
