Protected Tree To Be Cut Down

Tuesday April 2 2013

Cannon Hall Cannon Hall

A PROTECTED ash tree at Cannon Hall will be cut down and replaced by an oak.

The tree was safeguarded by a tree preservation order but Barnsley councillors voted to have it removed because of a large split in the trunk, which was seen as a health and safety issue.

Cllr Doug Birkinshaw said: "As far as I'm concerned those trees shouldn't have been cut down."

Council officers recommended a review of trees in the park covered by preservation orders.

Ash Tree?! It's not a ash tree.
There is no preservation order on any tree in cannon hall park.
And the roots for the existing tree are well set so the new tree would have no chance.
