Vigil for the trees


Come and honour the beauty of our woodland before it is lost to us. Join us for a vigil at the beautiful spot by the River Colne where the Red Rebel Brigade bore witness at our 'Stand for the Trees' walk in December.

Now that Boris has given the go ahead for HS2, contractors are moving in to take our woodland from us in the Colne Valley and across the UK and we need to publicly acknowledge what will be lost.

Bring a red ribbon to adorn a tree, your love of nature and a friend.

This is a family-friendly opportunity to reconnect with nature, enjoy the beauty of the nature reserve and show your support once more for the trees.

Meet on the green bridge over the River Colne in Denham Country Park from 3.30pm, the vigil will begin by the Ancient Ford at 4 and you can join for as long as you wish. Please wear wellies as it will likely be very wet.

If you have queries you can view the Facebook event here or ask on Telegram if you do not have Facebook.

I’m angry and sad and sad and angry a furious as much of these trees are ONLY BEING FELLED TO MAKE WAY FOR CAR PARKING OF HS2 WORKERS It’s because of the machinery The track itself is Narrow but the land grab is HUGE

I have no words to express how I feel about this.....such contempt for nature is utterly bewildering and unthinkable 😢


shocking madness and corrupt thinking




& they've stolen the timber value which is a lot of money so not only destroyed protected public property but stolen from the public purse too. Remarkable BoJo is it not !!!

A Shame.😧😧.

Thought they couldn't fell trees until the sap goes down !
