700 year old tree partly destroyed by careless BBQ fire in Richmond Park
It existed before both world wars, before Alexander Bell invented the telephone, and even before the Great Fire of London in 1666, but a 700-year-old oak tree was nearly wiped out from Richmond Park, by a BBQ costing a mere £1.99
For the third time this year, the fire brigade has been called to the park to deal with a fire caused by a disposable barbecue.
In the most recent case, fire engulfed the hollow part of the veteran tree requiring fire officers and a tree surgeon to spend a gruelling four hours removing chunks of the tree to douse the flames.
They were able to save the tree from being destroyed.
Adam Curtis, Assistant Park Manager at Richmond Park, said: “What people don’t realise is how easy these fires can start. People buy their cheap barbecue from a supermarket, seek a spot which provides shelter from the wind, and next thing they know they’ve set a 700-year-old tree on fire. Invariably they get scared and run off.
Apart from the obvious tree damage, fires can have a serious impact on wildlife including killing bats or baby chicks by choking them to death, destroying grass snake’s nests and obliterating the wildlife that feed on the dead or decaying wood of veteran and ancient trees.
Police patrol the Royal Parks, but with all eight covering in excess of 5,000 acres there is no way they can catch everyone, so we ask the public to please take some responsibility and recognise the dangers.”
