I was disgusted to read that the Chairman cast a deciding vote in favour of felling the holm oak tree in Lyndhurst Road.
This goes against everything we are striving to achieve in our area to improve present air quality.
There are many uneven pavements and always will be, due to all kinds of things.
We expect roots in the vicinity of a tree but we do not always expect broken paving stones in the city centre. However, we live with them.
The wall can be demolished and relocated, if necessary.
Planting another tree is NOT an answer. Wildlife, in this case starlings, depend on us.
It’s not too late to save this tree so please let all concerned citizens make a fuss.
