Large tree toppled by high winds across Nascot Wood Road, in Watford, removed

Watford Observer: Picture: Len Kerswill. Picture: Len Kerswill.

A large tree that collapsed in Watford last week has yet to be removed.

The tree came down in Nascot Wood Road late on Friday night and was blocking the road for most of Saturday.

A large part of the tree and several branches remain. Cones have been placed around it and a traffic bollard has been placed at the end of the trunk to alert drivers.

Lydia, who lives opposite the tree, said: "I was out when it fell but it came down right across the entrance of mine and my neighbour’s houses.

"We could just about get our car out but they were stuck. The traffic on Saturday was backed up all down the road.

"They haven’t said when they are coming to take the rest of it away."

The supposedly condemned iconic Cedar of Lebanon tree in Cassiobury although much exposed on high ground is still standing tall and strong whilst other mature trees despite the protection of others have come crashing down.

There is no disguising a moral here when one looks at how political power systems work in Watford.

A sign at either end of the road would have been nice yesterday. Instead every car had to drive half way down the road to where the tree was and realise they couldn't get through only to have to turn around.

One other reason drivers found it hard to get through was because of the traffic control system set up on the road. Get rid of it!

Does it confer UK tax exile status? That might be worth having.
