Bristol Tree Forum objects to this application.
This tree is growing in a Conservation Area which gives is a special public, community status over and above the private amenity it may or may not bring to its owner. As such it ought to be managed in the same way that the Council manages the public trees it is responsible for.
Under the Council's Tree Management Policies - bristol.gov.uk/documents/
The only reason given for the application is because it is said to be 'due to excessive shading'. No other reason given why the tree should be felled. This is not enough to justify the tree being felled. Other management options can be explored if this is really the case.
The tree is under threat despite its special status, so it should further be protected with a Tree Preservation Order. It is an excellent example of its species with a high public amenity value, being visible not only from nearby houses, but also from both St John's Road and Hurle Crescent.
