TREES felled in The Causeway, Horsham were cut down as part of a ‘modest landscape improvement’ carried out by Horsham District Council.
Initially on Wednesday (October 26) branches were cut from the two Norway Maple trees, but in the following days more work was carried out leaving just two raw stumps.
The district Council said that it was doing ‘modest landscape improvements to the traffic island’, the purpose of this ‘minor project’ being to maintain an ‘open and attractive space’, which it said had become ‘overgrown’.
But David Moore, chairman of The Horsham Society believes this was an ‘extreme’ way to de-clutter the island.
