Emergency tree protection orders for all Bristol city trees.

Early Sunday morning, 9th June, mature Norway Maple trees were felled on Bristol's inner city Lower Ashley Road. This happened during the nesting season and was only halted when concerned local residents called the police.

Because Bristol is a climate emergency city this good intention needs to be translated to policies on the ground. This means the planning department needs to be instructed by the council to revoke all permissions for tree felling until a debate and review takes place.

These five trees are a symbol of one way to counter inner city pollution, standing a stone's throw from the M32 motorway. While we wait for a city wide moratorium on tree felling we ask for the Lower Ashley Road Norway Maples to be given immediate protection.
