HS2 7 Sisters Oak Felling Steeple ClaydonAdd to Lightbox Download
A tree surgeon working with the National Eviction Team on behalf of HS2 Ltd fells a 200-year-old oak tree alongside the East West Rail route known locally as the ‘7 Sisters Oak’ as part of works connected to the HS2 high-speed rail link on 23 September 2020 in Steeple Claydon, United Kingdom. A small group of local people and anti-HS2 activists based at the nearby Poors Piece Conservation Project watched the felling of the tree, which was home to bats and other species, whilst monitored by a joint force of around fifty bailiffs, security guards and police officers from Thames Valley Police.
