    Default Utting Avenue

    Hope this is the right place for this thread.
    Have just been down Utting Avenue by Liverpool Football Club, and some if not all the trees on the Avenue are being cut down. Is this more vandalism going on in the name of so called improvements for the Anfield area? We are going to lose half of Stanley Park, now they are chopping the trees down. The only thing left in Anfield soon that is green will be there away strip.

    Yes I was down that way on Friday and took some pic,s of
    the guys up the tree,s with chainsaws in hand....
    I like trees but to be honest some of them are a right pain, blocking
    light, blocking gutters etc.

    Hi steveb I like trees as well, but i don't think they will block as much light out as a 60 thousand seater stadium will or block as many gutters as all the chip paper and fast food cartons that the fans leave behind

    Looks bad. Nothing wrong with big trees. So they said they're gonna plant new ones? Why not just "trim" the old ones?
    It's sad.

    One hopes this isn't universal along all of Utting Avenue!

    I can see the point of them blocking light...especially at night where the trees will have obscured several of the streetlights along there...but that shouldn't warrant cutting em' all down!

    Was the image taken near to a Junction?? Get the impression a filter lane might soon occupy the once wooded area in the pic.
