🌲Street trees in Bush Hill Park – update🌲

I have been making ongoing enquiries about the level of trees planted on our pavements as a local Councillor.

Since the start of 2019 to the end of this financial year (April 2021); a total of 42 trees have been removed and 92 trees planted – a net addition, but only of 50 trees across the Ward – not enough by far!

Trees that are with the contractors to plant by April (some may have been done recently) are as follows and within the numbers above;

Abbey Road, 1 Tree Bury Street West, 2 Trees Church Street, 2 Trees Colne Road, 1 Tree Halstead Gardens, 1 Tree Harlow Road, 1 Tree Melbourne Way, 2 Trees Queen Annes Gardens, 1 Tree Second Avenue, 1 Tree Trinity Avenue, 2 Trees.

If your road/street has seen a net reduction in trees over the years, please let me know. Please see red line map to see if you are within Bush Hill Park Ward.

I have called on the Council for greater action, especially given they declared a ‘Climate Emergency’ in 2019! If you are also concerned about tree levels in Bush Hill Park Ward please feel welcome to email the Cabinet Member for Environment and copy me in
