Join us in painting the Monkey Puzzle Tree and handing out leaflets this Friday from 11am at Brockhole, Ambleside..
The National Park have given the thumbs up to new nuclear build and a nuclear dump – so in the scheme of things the felling of a tree is of little consequence? The tree is the Monkey Puzzle – an endangered species in its native Chile and very sensitive to pollution of air, soil and water…
FAMOUS MONKEY PUZZLE
Will be felled by the Lake District National Park later this year UNLESS ENOUGH PEOPLE SAY NO
The Gaddum family commissioned the creation of Brockhole and asked Thomas Mawson to design the grounds. Once Mawson had completed his design, the Gaddums set about personalizing their garden and the monkey puzzle was the first tree they planted. The Lake District National Park’s reason for felling the tree now is that it “is not part of the Mawson design” this is a mean spirited view to take of a garden that has evolved over many decades.
The Brockhole Monkey Puzzle is “one of the finest specimens in Cumbria” Cumbria Gardens Trust
National Tree of Chile.
Declaration of the monkey puzzle tree as a Natural Monument in Chile means that logging of this endangered species is now forbidden and there are national parks in Chile for its protection
