Sorry Alan I did not spot your earlier post - you asked "please would the Chiswick Riverside Councillors help us get them [missing trees] replaced?" Happy to help if I can. I am meeting with a Hounslow Highways rep on Wednesday (and Cllr Lynch)so please PM me a list or even post it on this thread for public information.

Although many us very much enjoy our street trees and the sense of place that they provide some do go rogue and many residents are more than happy when they are removed.

Hounslow Highways has committed to replace every tree that it has to remove e.g. because the specimen is dead or diseased. They do not however replace these trees immediately allowing the roots to die back and diseases to dissipate. Replacement trees may not always be put back exactly where the old one was located for a variety of reasons.

If HH is "forgetting" to replace trees that it has removed  please let HH and your councillors know.

It is more difficult (but not impossible) to get street trees replaced that were removed pre-HH. The Lead Members at that time was an interesting chap who placed a moratorium on the re-planting of trees in Chiswick. He had spotted the statistic that a third (?) of all Hounslow's street trees were in Chiswick and he decided off his own bat that until the street trees were evenly distributed across the Borough no more would be planted in Chiswick.

Thankfully this character is no longer a Lead Member and sanity has returned.

You can of course pay for a street tree to be planted in your neighbourhood. See the Hounslow website for details.
