Now you see them…

FullSizeRender (2)…now you don’t. Wansteadium tries to pay attention to matters big and small around Wanstead, but confesses the removal of two trees outside Sumo Fresh/Zoology/Long Horn passed it by.

They were there when Wansteadium last looked (and the metal cage was actually used as an impromptu bike rack) but now they’re not. It’s as if they never existed. Except Google Streetview tells us we’re not going mad.

Any intelligence out there, please report it below.

  • Incidentally, while on the subject of this part of town, congratulations to Zoology which earlier this month was named as one of the finalists in the Salon Business Awards.

Reader Gug Kyriacou writes: “Just to let you know. Redbridge council has been in touch to say, “They we’re removed as there was some construction that needed to take pace underground because the trees on that location kept dying. This work has now been completed and the trees will be replaced closer to the winter.”

  1. It is not the only place this has happened. It appears the trees are getting replaced around Wanstead with some outside of the Tree House Nursery on Cambridge Park Road getting done only last week.


  2. Glad to hear Redbridge claims they will be replaced, just hope they follow through.


  3. Yes and out side the nursery there is one tree site which has been Tarmac over Why?


  4. Yes, I saw that one had been removed in Overton and tarmaced over too just this week.
    I would imagine the high street ones would be replaced as they follow the line of the avenue of the carriageway trees which used to run from the old Wanstead House to the Eagle pond.
