I didn’t mean for the title of this blog to rhyme – I’m not just a pretty tree surgeon in Manchester! Sadly, I’m not here to write you a poem, I’m here to tell you about something more serious that I read in the news today.
There has been an outbreak of a fungus-like disease over in the Belvoir forest in Belfast, which ultimately means that thousands of trees will have to be cut down. As a professional tree surgeon in Manchester, I’m always sad when trees have to be removed, but in this case, it’s the right decision.

The 1920s was the decade for jazz and it introduced one of the most famous jazz artists of today, Louis Armstrong. We’re not going to go into too much detail about The Jazz Age, but we are going to tell you “What a Wonderful World” it is, or isn’t in this case, with the blossoming 1920s Sheffield trees.
One street in Sheffield is home to 52 lime and cherry trees that date back to 1926, and they fill the residents with joy, as these trees add character to the street.

Even those these trees are to be replaced in the next planting season, the local residents are arguing against their removal.
