Nuthatch: page 23 of Beeches, Boreholes and Badgers

Wastwater Chronicles


16th July 1996

Had a phone call from the police who want to know if campaigners are going to “sit in” the Rusland Beeches.  I reply that it is not likely (but the NPA chairman has said they will build me a tree house in the largest tree and fell that first!)

We expect a compromise, as the NPA Project Manager is “recommending a less drastic alternative than to fell all the trees.”

Thinking about it later the police have a cheek.  It is the National Park in the wrong – Tree Preservation Order trees.  Anyone else would be fined £10,ooo a tree.
