That is so sad, but I understand the damage the roots would cause. I wonder how old I was?

Re: Avoid Newchurch Rd. Rawtenstall this am.

It was a pity to see such a magnificent tree felled. I had a soft spot for the giant beastie (in a none-tree-hugger way !) but it was very much out of scale with the other trees (about a third Xs taller) with enormous branch spread and, as you say ukswf, the roots may have been problematic (there is a hump in foot path). The houseowner must be delighted to have a view from their windows and more day light.
Lovely tree - wrong location.

Those trees would have been planted in the 1920's or 30's when Newchurch Road was widened and first developed between Waingate Road and Higher Cloughfold, so they will be about 80 years old.

That's the one .

Looks a bit weedy at the moment but when it grows it wants to be as big & mighty as its big brothers further down the road ( just not quite as big & mighty as its Uncle (stump) Poplar )

Thanks Rossday.

Somebody has shredded the stump, it's all gone. Just flat piece of ground now.

Anybody know what happened to the tiddler ? Sadly it is no more .

- If it was a car that collided with it then thankfully it was the tiddly sapling rather than the previous gigantic Poplar
- If it was some scummy hooligan that did the deed then hope they feel proud of their 'achievements'
