Help save the beautiful 100-year-old plane trees in Alexandra Gardens, Cambridge which are threatened by insurance companies


...for now and for future generations

The Alexandra Gardens Trees Group is a group of around 100 local residents in Cambridge who enjoy and love the beauty of Alexandra Gardens, a small, restful and beautiful park in the West Chesterton-Arbury area of the city. We want to preserve the beauty of the park for future generations. 

Five healthy, mature, century-old, London planes forming part of the park are in danger because of insurance claims. Cambridge City Council propose to reduce their size by 70%, reducing their lifespans. We are seeking to persuade the Council to fight these claims, since we are convinced that there are other possible causes of the cracking. 

Please help us fight the case. Legal action is not cheap. If successful, we could help to shift the law in favour of trees and away from the commercial interests of insurance companies. 

If you are a local resident who would like to be kept aware of the situation, or someone who simply enjoys and appreciates the benefit of well planted mature green spaces in towns and cities, please see our blog page and contact us to join our mailing list.
