Its well known that AT planning restrictions include staying beneath tree height As all the big trees die of old ages / firework related injuries, will they need to take out existing rides that are taller than the last tree standing? Presumably the planning permission is based on what was there when built, otherwide Octonauts could be the highest ride there next season Does AT have a tree succession plan? They do remove the odd mature tree, and it takes several decades to get trees of those heights. I always think they should transplant in (ignoring the arboriculture issues) some huge fir trees so they can have a 200ft coaster; obv. its unlikely to work back in the real world.
