The scandal over Sheffeld’s trees grows – with 16,000 indicated for the chop!!!!!!!
Rumour now has it that over 16,000 of Sheffield’s 36,000 roadside trees are for the chop – up from the recommended 500 in the 2007 consultancy report to the Council.
To describe this as monstrous, disastrous and shameful is to make a massive UNDERSTATEMENT.
All we have heard so far from AMEY and SCC appears to be lies and damned lies ……… and they seem to just keep trotting out the same old misinformation.
More in due course.
**Latest UPDATE – the actual figure that the City Council now own up to and have been forced to reveal – is 17,500 mature trees to be removed.
Which WE the public are paying for and the re-planting of the same number of small saplings – and which of course do not provide any of the same ecosystem services or other benefits in the same amount – but which we are again paying for ……… and AMEY are laughing all the way to the bank at our expense!!!!
