Gardening Which? are running a street tree campaign:

 

Gardening Which? campaign to protect and promote urban tree cover has three broad aims:

 • To help stop the abuse of urban trees

 • To see the many benefits of urban trees fully recognised by national and local government, communities and individuals

 • To encourage a new, forward-looking vision for urban trees in the new millennium

Good luck, we say:
