Trees

We feel it is important to maintain greenery within our communities for future generations. We are very much in favour of preserving existing trees wherever possible, and planting suitable species of new trees within Urban areas. 

Trees provide many advantages to an urban area, which include:
  • Improving local air quality.
  • Reducing noise polution.
  • Stabilising temperatures, particularly on very hot days.
  • Reducing the risk of flooding.
  • Adding value to urban areas by making them more attractive and consequently increasing house values by 5% to 15%.
  • Promoting a sense of local pride and well being.
