Wellingtonia felled by idiots!

Perhaps this has already been posted.

To me this an act of blatant vandalism & I believe that ALL those responsible should spend time behind bars......Not just a fine, although a £5 million fine would make them sit up eh!

Who (contractor) in their right mind would fell such a big stick without some query? Firstly you'd need some serious machinery to fell this at 200 years old as they are really quite large, then you'd need some very heavy equipment to haul it away. Yes there is a market but the DIY portable saw folk would still need some serious milling power then hauling equipment/manpower to just take away the produce.

I'm hoping the council will have the balls to see this through the legal process as to what I beliveve is a typical developer scam. £money greasing palms & all those underhand things that go on.

Comments welcome....

Don't hold your breath. :(

 

While the LA has to take all the risk in prosecuting TPO contraventions and then all the resulting fines disappear into the central Government pot, nothing will change. Where's the incentive?
