Devon Watson started this petition to Deparment of Environment Food and Agriculture

This petition aims to save one of Europe’s last Elm tunnels. DEFA should order that this landmark be protected against development. 

“Internationally important tree landmark to be felled.

Planning consent has been granted for the felling of one of Europe’s last elm tree tunnels at St Marks. Despite being a registered woodland with trees over 100 years old, the proposal to create large visibility splays on both sides of the road were approved in May.

The Isle of Man has the largest remaining field elm populations in Europe, and so is considered internationally important. Elm tree lined roads would once have been a common sight throughout the continent. Now one of the last could soon be felled.”
