Hartlepool Borough Council are about to implement changes to Rossmere Park which include the 'selective tree felling' of 22 mature trees of up to 70 years old including 2 on the Park Island.
There is no logical reason to do this.
Why is this important?
The Rossmere Park Island has the only breeding colony of Egrets in the whole county. If these birds move on because of the disturbance on the Island they will not come back.
Not only do these trees add to the character of the park, they form a vital part of the local ecology for the Park’s large Bat colony.
