I would love to know the names of the trees in the park. I sent an email to Bristol City Council & got this reply:
Just a quick introduction - my name's Pete Norman, and I'm in charge of surveying Bristol City Council's trees. Unfortunately I don't get to do any research into the history of our parks, but I recently supplied a list and map of the trees in the Park to the Friends of St Andrews Park;

I wonder if I could have a copy of this list & map? Perhaps it could go on the website?

Some information on a new website,Trees of Bristol is in the Trees Tab of our website.

This site provides an interactive guide to the trees in Bristol. Currently there are 17660 live trees in the database and 18637 including stumps, covering 643 species, varieties and cultivars in 118 locations. St Andrews Park is one of the sources used in the information.

Replacing Trees in the Park

We asked the BCC Senior Arboriculturalist some questions relating to Trees in the park.  We received a very full reponse which you can read here

On the Bird Walk we noticed that a sycamore and a cherry tree had notices saying they were to be felled and not replaced.  We also saw an Ash tree that had lost a main branch in the high winds of the previous week, but there was no notice that it was to be felled.  Several concerned friends contacted us and we got in touch with the Senior Arboricultural Officer, Neighbourhoods, Bristol Parks and Estates.

On Wednesday 21.9.11the ash tree was felled and removed.  We received the following email from the BCC officer.  “The decision to remove the ash was mine, the tree had lost its main stem in the storm.  Officers were unable to see a way in which it could be pruned to allow the tree to be kept which would allow the tree to grow into a good mature specimen.  As you can see from the photo attached the loss of the main stem left a large gap in the tree’s canopy and other branches had also lost some timber which will have weakened them.

On the initial call out when the branch failed it was felt that the tree did

not need to immediately come down, and the tree was re-looked at the

following day to see if it could be retained.  Where we can retain trees

damaged during storms we do seek to do so.”

We have several questions about the plan for our much loved trees, so we will keep in touch with BCC. As they say, “Watch this space…”

Felling of Trees next to Eastville Park

You might have seen this reported in the Evening Post. Over 70 trees were felled on private land next to Eastville Park on Sunday 9 November. Bristol Parks tree officers responded quickly to place Tree Protection Orders on the remaining trees and the Forestry Commission are preparing a case of possible prosecution.

Hi Annie,

Dave Cemlyn was instrumental in getting the Guide to Trees of St Andrews Park published. You could email him directly using this website. There is a committee meeting Monday 3.11.08 and I could alert him to your request.
