Protection of trees
Update 8/2/2015 (ref 14/TO982/TCA)
Richmond Council have secured a revised application to protect the sycamore behind the tap-on-the Line. Following our representations opposing the felling of the tree, it will now have its crown reduced instead.
Update 14/1/2015 (ref 14/TO982/TCA)
The Kew Society rarely comments on trees but proposals to fell the sycamore behind the Tap on the Line pub seemed unnecessary. The tree is very visible in the Village and from the Kew Gardens train platforms. We asked for more evidence that damage was being caused to buildings by the tree. The Council have confirmed that the application to fell the tree has been withdrawn and a revised application made for trimming the crown.
