Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information
This evening on the way past the Central Library I noticed that a sign had been placed on one of the three very large trees outside the main body of the building explaining that it was to be removed because it was continuing to cause damage to the pavement and other solutions had proved useless. How sad I thought, still these things happen, and then I looked at my feet on the pavement and noticed that it was not damaged to any great extent at all. However there were three 'tree consultants' from Ushers looking at it although perhaps Friday afternoon at 5pm was a bit late to start tree felling.
I then walked on past the entry to the library and looked at the large tree outside the children's library end of the building and looked at the pavement there - cracked crazed, some paving stones at a crazy angle, I wonder if Haringey have once again demonstrated their incompetence by marking the wrong tree for removal. I hate losing trees unless it is necessary. I pointed out this anomaly to the workmen and continued on my way.
