Abstract

Perusal of questionnaire data, media reports and the web was undertaken to determine if and why so many urban trees are felled. While a few prople do seem to genuinely hate trees or use them as scapegoats for their own deficiencies, the over-riding reason for felling trees appears to be preferences for different types of trees and gardens between different tree-lovers. Effective controls on tree felling in private space will be necessary to make the urban forest sustainable.
