Latest update on Queen's Wood Oak trees
Haringey Council and AXA have agreed that no further action will be taken on the four Oak trees in Queen’s Wood for at least a further 12-month period.
Having previously sought additional arboricultural advice and guidance in this matter, AXA now wish to undertake a further round of investigations and monitor the site for the next year until November 2021.
We remain keen to continue to work with them in the weeks and months ahead to explore whether, contrary to the initial expert advice, there are any viable alternatives which would avoid the felling of these four Oak trees.
Haringey Council’s Cabinet Member for Climate Change, Equalities and Leisure, Cllr Kirsten Hearn, said:
I’m really pleased to hear this news. I’ve always wanted to avoid cutting down these trees if we could find an alternative. We now have at least 12 months to look for a solution and I will continue to talk with campaigners about options during this time.
We will continue to engage with the campaigners and, should there be any further updates in the meantime, we will share them here on this website.
Background information on this case can be viewed in the news items published on 15 July, 30 July, 21 August, 18 September and October 16 on this website.
