Dear Alexandra Park
There is very great danger of a private developer obtaining permission to remove 5 Oak trees on a site to enable a redevelopment to go ahead on originally council owned land in Bounds Green.
The trees have been in existence in our part of north London for over 120 years and deserve to be treated better and with more deference.
THEY REMIND US OF THE FIELDS BENEATH OUR STREETS.
The maps below show the history of the copse and the trees.
The copse was once part of Blue Bell Wood, one of the 4 Ancient Woods in Haringey and therefore of historical importance, they are now located in the rear gardens of Tunnel Gardens, Bounds Green.
We think it imperative the council considers placing a Tree Preservation Order on the trees to allow their continued existence for future generations and any development take note accordingly.
If you can find the time please make a comment on the Planning portal to make things easier we attach a direct link to the page below.
