Tree felling in the village

I am very concerned that we seem to be losing our beautiful landmark trees in the village, and gradually losing what makes the village so attractive.  I am at this very moment watching tree surgeons preparing to fell a gorgeous old but healthy beech tree which is by the footpath opposite Riverside Gardens.  For the 17 years we have lived here we have enjoyed this stunning tree through all the seasons, with its resident birdlife, and I am heartbroken to see it being felled, apparently on the orders of the council who have told the owners they are liable.  Through all the storms its never lost so much as a branch.  This is health and safety gone mad!
