Hundreds of trees to be felled for Cambridge bus route to tackle climate change

Coton Orchard was planted in 1922. Like many orchards in the region it was established for the production of apples for the wholesale trade, with the bulk of its produce being marketed through London. Since fruit started to be imported from abroad, Coton Orchard is probably one of the last remaining orchards in Cambridgeshire and perhaps the most picturesque. A haven for wildlife and a peaceful respite from the hustle and bustle of Cambridge city centre, Coton Orchard is a patchwork of apple and plum trees, strawberry fields, green pastures and grape vines.

    This is unnecessary and unacceptable.. they should look for better alternatives that don't include destroying nature

      I understand that this proposal may seem counterintuitive to some, but as Cambridge looks to combat climate change, it is critical to address transportation as a major contributor to emissions. Removing a significant number of trees for the purpose of a bus route is a necessary step in order to reduce the number of cars on the roads, which will both reduce congestion and reduce the associated carbon emissions.
