Plan for Trees – in Plymouth
By Tess Wilmot
more pleasant, healthy and fruitful place to live in. Our friends at Plymouth Tree Partnership have been working hard over may years to plant new trees in various locations and to replant many of the street trees which had been lost over time. They have also noted that many of the street trees are of a similar age and maturity.
Basically this means that if we don’t plant more of the right trees in the right places, the city’s current greenscape will reduce drastically in the next 10-20 years. Furthermore, many edible hedges and more than 40 community orchards have been planted in the city recently. It is important that they are cared for and thrive so that they will provide opportunities for foraging and harvesting for decades to come.
So, please take five minutes to fill in the survey about Plymouth trees. It is really important for the local councillors and other stakeholders to hear a range of views on trees in the city. You can find the questionnaire and an informative message from Cllr Sue Dann on the Plymouth City Council website :
