Battle to save Thurston oak trees continues

30 May 2020


Residents are ready to renew protests over the removal of oak trees.

The dispute has been reignited after letters were delivered to houses along Ixworth Road in Thurston, where the trees are located.

Mid Suffolk district councillor Wendy Turner described it as ‘crucial’ that we preserve our rural heritage and ecosystems.

“Preservation of trees has to be at the centre of our aim to be carbon neutral. The planning decision to allow Persimmon to fell the trees was given a few years ago and since then the Government and our own local council (Mid Suffolk) have declared a climate and biodiversity emergency, which should now be taken into consideration.”
