TV presenter Vernon Kay posts video in support to save Sheffield tree due for the chop – The Star
“But a group of people who sit on the council have decided to chop it down. if that tree wasn’t chopped down, it would out-live everyone in Sheffield. Imagine the generations that have walked past, driven past and looked at that tree.
“But because it’s no longer suitable because the pavements is a bit wonky by all accounts, they’re going to cut it down along with a whole bunch of trees which is a travesty because trees are the lungs of the planet – everyone knows that.
Mr Kay urged his 1.28 million followers to keep up to date with the tree saga and urged people to back campaigners.
Addressing local authority bosses directly, he added: “Sheffield Council – come on. It’s only a pavement I’m sure you’ve got a few quid somewhere that you can redesign the pavement around that tree that’s been in Sheffield longer than everyone in Sheffield.
