The future Tesco Extra site in Hattersley
This was demolished Manchester overspill housing. The monkey puzzle tree survived and will presumably remain part of the new development.
Hattersley Monkey Puzzle Tree
The Hattersley Monkey Puzzle tree was planted in 1968 by Barry Tongue in the back garden of his house on Garnett Road. The house along with others in the area were demolished as part of the Hattersley redevelopment plan. By then the tree had become a local landmark and a preservation order was placed on it in 2007.

In 2010 planning permission was granted for Tesco to build a supermarket on the site and the tree was moved to Mill Hill Green on the other side of Ashworth Lane.
