Manchester City Council and Heritage Lottery Fund: Stop plans to unnecessarily fell around 280 trees in Alexandra Park MCR
Around 400 trees that have been a feature of the park for 40-108 years are going to be felled to make room for planters and numerous tennis courts. Alexandra Park has always been a necessary green oasis for wildlife and people in a built up urban area. Please sign the petition to show Manchester City council and Heritage Lottery Fund how many people object and to save these beautiful trees!

Reasons for signing
These trees are a vital part of the heritage of Whalley Range.
Because it’s my local park and didn’t even know the plan was to fell so many trees or I’d have opposed sooner!
I have enjoyed this park and its wildlife for over 40 years and feal that less trees would mean less birds – plant more trees and refurbish the existing tennis courts if necessary
It’s crazy to cut down the established avenue paralell with Claremont Road

There are so many reasons to look after our trees, They are homes to birds mammals and insects providing food and shelter. They absorb Co2 and noise pollution. Thay are beautiful and should be protected.

This is a well used/loved park. If these decisions went by without including the opinions of every day-to-day visitor to the park then that’s shameful. These spaces need protecting and if there are big changes then consultation with neighbourhoods to keep an inclusive culture.Leona johnson CHESHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM
These trees are a major feature of Alex park, Whalley Range and South Manchester. At a time when our connection to nature is being gradually eroded in an increasingly urban society we need these beautiful, majestic, old, majical trees. They are important for our mind body and spirit. Please think again.

those trees are beautiful and new tree planting these days often just features scrappy prunus species
