Unfortunately one of Cambridge’s grand old trees met its end recently after storm damage rendered it unsafe for the public.

One of the many large trees lining the athletics grounds on Hamilton Rd couldn’t be saved after its structural integrity was compromised, and it had to be cut down late last month.

With winter’s grip firmly in place, a few people could be seen cutting chunks from the felled tree this week, most likely for firewood.

Council confirmed the tree would be replaced within the next month or two.
