Criminal damage to trees

Over the past twenty four hours 5 small trees have been cut down with a chainsaw in Highbury Park. One on the path by the play area ( a holly tree) and 4 in the area around the Henburys. (Two young plane trees and two blossom trees)

The police have been informed. We would suggest that if you see any suspicious activity you ring the police immediately. Please do not tackle anyone directly, but the sight of someone with a chain saw in a public park should be treated as something to be concerned about, if it is clear that they are not working as part of an official team. We will keep you up dated if there are any further developments. Let’s hope this is a one off event because it is very sad to see our lovely trees being destroyed in this way.
