During the summer of last year, I came across the following scene on a building site. I don’t even know where to begin with this one, as it was that atrocious that the only thing I could do was laugh, curse, and take photos. The two ash trees (Fraxinus excelsior) were removed very shortly afterwards, once the site managers were aware of what had happened and what the risks were with leaving the ash trees standing. A shame, as they were very nice trees, and I don’t know whether there has been any re-planting. I hope there has.
Look and weep.
