A message from fellow Peckham Rye Labour Councillor, Renata Hamvas, about the proposed felling of the cherry tree on Peckham Rye Park (pictured above):
"Following this issue being raised by concerned residents, all tree felling has been suspended in Peckham Rye Park. Friends of Peckham Rye Park will be discussing each tree with Council Officers. The magnificent large cherry tree that unfortunately has white rot fungus is to be examined by sonic tomography (sort of tree ultrasound). This will enable the internal structure of the tree to be studied to see if it is possible to save the tree."
