Why Do Trees Die For Development?

How often do we read in planning applications for development of sites requiring demolition of an existing dwelling to build two or more new dwellings on the site that “An evaluation of the proposed layout, in the context of the existing site, has indicated that construction of the development is projected to require the removal of “moderate quality trees” and “short lengths of low quality hedge”. There is one such development on Granville Park Aughton, a conservation area where that status counts for nothing if there are trees in the way of it granclear. And in New Cut Lane Halsall even more tree carnage has just taken place 14a1. [click all pics to enlarge] Perhaps like me you think developers read the minds of politicians in the rush for more house building, so for them to act first 14a2 ask second 14a3 is the norm 14a4 for trees 14a5. How depressing!
