A new petition has been started against the felling of the Chelsea Elm.
“In the midst of its ill‐informed and deeply unpopular campaign of felling trees across the city, the council, in its wisdom, has decided to remove a much loved and very rare elm tree. Quite apart from being rare, the tree is home to the threatened white‐letter hairstreak butterfly. But it’s damaging a pavement, so it has to go. The city is special because of its trees, not its pavements.”
Show your opinion of the callous attitude the council has shown to the concerns of residents and environmental experts.
