Protest planned against Bose Farm tree removal

Save the Bose Forest group to gather Aug. 1 on 64 Avenue

Residents opposed to the removal of more than 200 trees on the historic Bose Farm property plan to protest at the site Thursday evening.

According to the Save the Bose Forest Facebook group, those against the proposed residential development will meet at 7 p.m. Aug. 1 at the A.J. McLellan Elementary parking lot and walk over to the 3.69 hectare (9.1 acre) property at 16420 64th Avenue with signs to bring attention to their campaign.

A representative for the developer has said the plan has undergone significant changes since last year in order to keep as many trees as possible.  In July of last year, the developer planned to remove 339 trees in a forested area on the site (see story: “Bose Farm development gets nod from Surrey council“).

In recognition of the heritage component of the property, the developer has agreed to preserve the Henry Bose farmhouse, milk cooling shed, and calf barn.
