Tree felling leaves sinking feeling

I SYMPATHISE with B Carter (Letters, June 13). How about the reason for cutting the trees in the Hemingfords Primary School in mid-summer last year, which resulted in bare trees and looking like mid winter in the months of July and August? Why was it done

I SYMPATHISE with B Carter (Letters, June 13). How about the reason for cutting the trees in the Hemingfords Primary School in mid-summer last year, which resulted in bare trees and looking like mid winter in the months of July and August? Why was it done, as they posed no danger? Only to please late parents, probably on the school run.

Maybe Mr Carter should just cut it down anyway. What's the worst that can happen? A fine and a smacked wrist, which will be considerably less than the cost of house repairs.

I do wonder to whose tune the council dances. The parking in Old Pound Close is just the same and Councillors Bates and Stephens say something needs to be done, but nothing happens.

Maybe Mr Carter should ask the council what they prefer, a tree cut down at not much cost or a court battle for God knows what damage to the house. If it were my house and life at risk, I know what I'd do and I wouldn't think twice.
