There is only a couple of weeks between these two photo’s but clearly life is returning to normal after repairs have been undertaken following the massive tree coming down in the high winds of mid-February 2014.

Maghull – Green Lane tree down

This huge tree came down around 4.15pm last Thursday afternoon, so I am told and it seems from chatting to a resident living nearby that rotted roots may have been the cause.

It was one of those trees that looked fine, indeed I must have walked under it hundreds of times over the years right back to when I took my daughter to Green Park School. The tree was much older than anyone reading this posting and it is rather sad to see it down.

Fortunately no one was hurt although a property in Green Link seems to have suffered some damage.
