Woolly decorations on Euston Trees

The government’s controversial HS2 project – which will provide a ‘new backbone of the national rail network’ by creating a high-speed route between London and Birmingham, and later Manchester and Leeds.  Objectors claim that the project will destroy communities, 98 ancient woodlands, and many individual trees, including most of those around Euston station in London.  Since May 2017 trees in Euston Square have ‘woolly decorations’ tied around their trunks in the hope that a strong campaign will prevent their destruction.
