Fallen Tree Eventually Replaced

Home » News » Do You Remember this Tree Falling Down?

In December 2018 a tree in the grass verge on Hightree Drive fell down across the footpath. The council is responsible for trees in the grass verges and sure enough Cheshire East Council removed the fallen tree one day after it fell, leaving behind the stump, a hole and 3 or 4 grotesque red & white traffic cones on the verge.

CEC was expected to return to remove the stump and cones, make good the grass verge and plant a new tree, but they didn't . Many months went by as grass grew up out of the top of the 3 ft high cones which were an eyesore on this pleasant drive. Residents and Henbury Parish Council made countless complaints to CEC which they ignored for month after month.

Eventually , after almost a year of pestering, CEC did remove the stump and cones and level the verge but refused to plant new tree.

We're delighted to report that Henbury Parish Council Tree Warden Simon Brown has planted a young rowan tree in that grass verge to partner the other rowans HPC planted along Hightree Drive a few years ago. We now look forward to it enhancing the village landscape for many many years to come.
