Tree felling 20.6.20

Hi Jo, Ive been meaning to get in touch about the trees.  You may be aware that as part of our city-wide mapping of trees in bristol, there is a map of the trees in St Andrews - click on Trees to get the map of all the trees.  This is based on BCC data occasionally enhanced with information and photos by Mark Ashdown and myself.  I'd like to do a proper re-survey of the trees - the girths haven't been measured for some years and it is not likely that BCC will do it.  In addition I suspect the species are less precise than they could be. This website allows registered users to updatethe information themselves and it would be great to get one or two of the members of the group involved. I know Simon Randoloph has been involded in trees and I had an expression of interest on the Facebook group from Simon Davis but heard no more.   

PS  I know about Dave Cemlyn's map of some years ago and Mark and I used it to map the individual trees but I had trouble getting them to agree so Ive gone with the BCC data which we can enhance

Hi Emma,

We have not received any info on this so far. Perhaps if anyone out there knows the answer, they can post it, or let me know and I'll post it.
