In order to enhance the area, Mr. Lane of Old Forge, Fairwood, claimed he “cut down rotten and decayed trees.” The majority of the trees were, according to Mr. Lane, completely waterlogged and decaying when he purchased the property in 2017. Furthermore, he said that nothing would grow there; therefore, he had planned to drain the area. Mr. David Leathley, a defense attorney, argued Mr. Lane had been provided false information. He alluded to NRW’s claim that when they visited the site, they told him he was doing an excellent job. Additionally, arboricultural advisor Mark Chester questioned the number of trees cut down, stating that he believes it was only 362, and that he had not seen any proof that it had been as high as 2,000.
