Filming Andy (The Tree man)

Posted in Uncategorized on January 19, 2009 by karenloiswhiteread

Spent the morning at the Cartehatch Depot filming Andy (the tree man), Through the consultation at the ‘Growingroom on Painters Lane I have realised that the public have very little understanding of why old trees are replaced with young trees and the reasons for doing it, so I thought it would be a good idea to get some answers for the film. Andy has worked as a tree specialist in Enfield for over 30 years and has an enormous knowledge of trees and problems associated with planting in an urban area. All trees that are removed are either coming to the end of their life, diseased, storm damaged, effecting services and infer structure, a danger to traffic or the general public. No trees are removed for know reason, Andy is a self confessed tree hugger and would not distroy a healthy tree.

More facts about tree planting in Enfield will be edited into the final film.
