Do you have any thoughts about trees in private gardens? I see people felling trees in their gardens all the time (and getting rid of hedges to replace them with wooden fences). is there any way to provide support and advice to householders to prevent this?

Helen Brawn - Warborough Parish Council

Hi I'm quite interested in the Miyawaki forestation method of planting some tiny forests in Frome has anyone had any experience of doing something like this in the uk.
Chris Wade

I am a volunteer working with parish councils and other groups to create the new Somerset Wood and Country Park. The Wood will cover 23 acres and comprise 11,281 trees to be planted over several years. The number was chosen to match the number of names listed in the Somerset Book of honour to record every Somerset man and woman who lost their life in the Great War. The site is now a designated Country Park and plans are in place to develop it's uses for walkers and runners, as well as a hub for information and diverse recreation and the appreciation and knowledge of trees

The more you plant the more a tree survey costs every 3 years and the more work is required - very expensive.

what is a tiny forest?
Lee Phillips
01:35:20
Hi, The biggest cost for us with street trees (Larger trees) is the watering for the following 5 years of planting which is often more costly than the cost of planting the tree, which needs to be considered. I really like the idea of getting the local community to help water them though.
Beckie Whitehouse Barrington PC
01:35:47
I think it was mentioned in a recent issue of The Clerk
Chris Wade
01:36:46
The tress were on a verge
Deanne Rose Highworth Town Council

Laura Cutter (Haydon Wick PC)
01:39:01
We had a large tree fall on one of our fields last summer. We made sure it was safe and secure and the kids loved playing on it over the summer. We left it there for a few months prior to removing.
Katy Jones Clerk Datchet Parish Council
01:39:16
If the three trees were in a Conservation Area they still would need to apply to the L A to fell these and then the application should be sent to neighbours and the Parish Council for comments

Our council works hard to try to stay rural, to encourage trees. But what can we do if TPOs We are fighting against the loss of our rural countryside, but we are suppo are not respected? When we complained, and after many months of keeping the matter alive, we were told that the way the trees were recorded was wrong and it was a mistake that the developer took the TPO tree away.
