Great news! The UK is greener today than it was forty years ago. Just goes to show that people are planting and managing trees well, and their efforts are changing our environment for the better.
Every tree works hard at being far more than a carbon sink. In the higher rainfall associated with climate change, trees with established rooting systems hold on to soil, so reduce soil erosion. As temperatures rise and our cities and towns get hotter, an avenue of trees provides shade and a naturally cooler environment to relax and enjoy an urban summer.
