Great Missenden, UK. 18th March, 2021. HS2 contractors continue works which are expected to include the felling of a row of hundred-year-old oak trees in Leather Lane (trees in the centre of the row have already been felled). Almost 40,000 people have recently signed a petition calling for the oak trees lining the ancient country lane not to be felled to make way for a temporary haul road and construction compound and local residents and conservationists have accused HS2 contractors of removing active bird boxes during the bird nesting season on the site.
