Please think twice about getting your trees cut back.
Geoff Juden, Chairman of The East London Garden Society, has lived in E3 for more than twenty years and he is also a volunteer for London Wildlife Protection. It therefore saddens him when he receives a picture like this.
A tree cutter of low intelligence and zero compassion for anything living, has brought these young birds to their deaths.
By removing all the branches, these young birds are now exposed to their predators. Magpies circling above are ready to dive in. Birds of prey, like sparrow hawks, crows, and magpies attack young pigeons and wood pigeons.
So, before you pay someone to slice branches off your tree, remember that there is a mother, father and baby birds living in your tree that need a home with protection as much as you do.
