Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

Krankbrother noise starts in Finsbury Park - best trees in park's northside under threat

KRANKBROTHER NOISE STARTS IN FINSBURY PARK - AUG 5, 2O23

HARINGEY TREE LOVERS - CALL OUT FOR EMAIL STORM!!!

BEST AVENUE OF PLANE TREES IN FINSBURY PARK UNDER THREAT!

This week party promoter Krankbrother set up in Finsbury Park smack back next to the best veteran trees in the park for a 5-day event starting this Saturday (5th August - 12 Aug.) They spend 2 weeks setting up with 7-ton JCBs, breeze blocks and huge sheets of fencing - what we saw before the fences locked us out was a horrifying lack of protection for the old and lovely tree root zones in this northside - the most bioperse part of the park.

There is no indication Haringey Council nor Krank, who invite DJS and 8,000 paying attendees to party are protecting trees - which the Woodland Trust say should be cordoned off by at least 15x the trunk diameter.

If you're in Haringey, or even elsewhere please write in the first instance to:

WRITE - SAMPLE LETTER

Please write to your Cllrs (the Ladder, Hermitage, Stroud Green, Cabinet Leaders, Council Officers and Senior Civil Servents at HaringeyCouncil)

✍️ SAMPLE LETTER, edit as you see fit but keep simple: ✍️

Dear Cllrs and Council Officers

I am very unhappy with the decision to host the 8,000 person Krankbrother festival in this nature-rich north side of Finsbury Park.

Please abide by your own and the Woodland Trust guidelines in protecting tree roots from compaction and other damage - residents on social media should not have to keep a check on the conduct of operations in the setting up and running of this festival.

150-year-old trees are our natural heritage and home to many bird species that are still nesting - these trees are not replaceable should they get diseased - once lost such monumental trees are lost forever.

You should not have made this decision in the knowledge of the ecological damage it causes.

I would like this festival to be moved off the north side of the park in the future and for senior civil servants to ensure due diligence from the events and parks team in monitoring multiple contractors. This clearly isn't happening at present.

Please respond to this email so that my concerns are neither ignored or outright denied.

🌎 Thank you 🌎 PROTECT * RESTORE * FUND

Thanks

To answer your first question: see my tweets from this morning.

To answer your second: haven't you? 

Pictures on Twitter of the branches they cut down so they could crane the toilets in. Someone I know saw them running the branches through a wood chipper. 

Pretty crap to cut large limbs off of mature trees so you can cram more porta potties into a park. 

Don't get me started on how poor the wheelchair access is. I love live music but it shouldn't damage the park and it should include everyone. 

totally agree.

I meant the report on the trees by Crouch End town hall actually.

Hi Park. You say the branches were removed so they could bring the toilets in by crane.

Do you know of anyone who saw the branches being removed, or the cranes moving the toilets into place?

Many thanks 

A friend saw them being cut down and ported out to a chipper outside the north gate of the festival site. I mentioned I had seen a twitter post showing the branches cut and it seemed to be so that they could put porta potties into the site. My friend agreed that this seemed to be the reason for cutting down trees from what they observed.
