Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information
OpinioN8 has received the following email from Haringey's arboricultural department:
I have seen several notices attached to local trees recently in these streets. There is one on a cherry (?) outside 9 Fairfield Road saying that it will be removed and subsequently replaced. Outwardly there is little sign of a problem. But I have in the past seen utterly superb reports on trees in Alexandra Palace an example of which is attached. These contain ultrasonic scans of the interior, which in the attachment shows that the tree in question at the time really was very sick. I have emailed the arboricultural officer asking if there are more detailed reports to be had. I will let you know of the response.
