Working To Save Moor Tree

Update on story below: On Monday morning Pat Walker, site manager, organised 6 of his builders to clear the rubble and put a protective fence around the tree. Thanks to all who were considering helping, but the work is done!


Summer foliage of Liquidambar; in the autumn, leaves turn gold to several shades of red.

The tree on the boundary of the Hob Stone Development that has builder’s rubble at its base has been identified as Liquidambar, a species rarely seen in these parts. Unless all of the caustic rubble is removed, the tree will slowly die.

Friends of Hob Moor has set up the following times this week for those who wish to help remove the rubble: Mon. – Fri. 9 – 10am and 6 -7pm, until the rubble is gone. A message will be posted here and on Facebook when the job is done and help is no longer needed. If you would like to help us, please bring a spade.
