As part of the growing work of our Nature Recovery Network a new survey project has been launched that is dedicated to trees; the trees in our streets, gardens and landscape. The aim is to document what trees we have in our local environment (species, age, health, significance), and, by becoming more aware of them, to look after and protect them. Together we hope to make a good plan for the future so that these amazing and beautiful giants and wannabe giants can continue to play their vital role in our ecology, and in bringing much comfort and joy to us humans.
