Didn't the TBE conference say a fair bit about people and communities too 

We've since heard from Paul that this is a whip planting that got away, so 
options of thinning or more plausibly a coppice cycle would certainly be 
viable, sustainable, and placate your tree haters.

I share your scepticism about the local press, which after all is most of 
what we have to go on here!

BTW, maybe the trees are under good arboriculural/ silvicultural
management. Maybe there are plenty of local unheard residents who like
the trees and all the benefits they provide. Maybe the bird that built
the nest that can be seen in the picture likes the trees becuase they
provide habitat.

Or maybe the Council should just chop them down as the minority have
decreed that they are dangerous!

Having attended the Trees in the Built Environment conference last
year, I heard plenty about the benefits of the urban forest and why we
should increase canopy cover. Maybe we should forget about all that
strategic stuff about trees and wellbeing/ climate change adaptation
and just get rid because a few locals have a grievance.

Of course, knowing how well local newspapers report news, these people
must be right, thus I am now firmly of the opinion that these people
are right and those pesky trees must be stopped before they drop
anymore leaves and twigs!
