    Michael Ramage of Cambridge University explains how the development of Cross-Laminated Timber makes it possible to build pretty much any building with wood while Tim Searchinger of Princeton University argues that turning forests into construction material has a high carbon cost for the planet.

    Friends of Dalry cemetry seemed anti the Roseburm to Canal cycle route the other day due to loss of trees. No trees lost yet of course as this is only a plan.unless people want to count blown in saplings onto the railway embankment like what happened before?

    AN INVESTIGATION has been launched after up to 12 trees were allegedly felled in Musselburgh to make way for a bin.

    Scottish Forestry, the Government body which oversees tree management, has confirmed it is looking into the removal of the trees, near the River Esk.

    Unauthorised felling is a criminal offence and could result in a fine of up to £5,000 per tree chopped down being issued by the courts.

    "Councillor Andy Forrest, fellow Musselburgh ward member, called for additional information to be made available to the public on where to report concerns about trees being felled."

    Possibly the best councillor for this particular job.

    This article was really interesting on planning permission in England

    "Ros Wyke tried for more than 25 years, including as leader of the former Mendip district council. Cautious council officers denied the paths planning permission. Then, in 2022, they began experimenting with using “permitted development rights” – the separate process that a farmer uses when building a new track through a field. This much more streamlined process still requires application forms and licences for hedgerow removal, water or drain crossings, and to protect newts or bats. However, it removes the need to survey every tree within 50 yards of a path, for example, and other elements of the planning process designed with large out-of-town developments in mind, like topographical surveys. This can easily cut two years off the process and make a path’s success far more likely. Under this model, planning permission needs to be granted only for those sections of path that meet roads, which cuts delivery timescales from decades to weeks."
