Bristol Street Trees Petition Now “Live”

Street Trees (3)

The strength of feeling against BCC’s proposals to drastically reduce the funding available for maintaining Bristol’s street trees continues to grow.

Bristol is lucky to have a tree legacy left by the Victorians, but it needs maintaining and topping up. University studies show that a city needs approximately 30% of Green Infrastructure (GI) to be healthy and help mitigate against the negative impacts of climate change. Not only are trees a major part of Bristol’s GI, accounting for about 14% of its value, they are also an effective and natural way of helping us keep healthy and happy.

    I don’t think it’s at all satisfactory for us to live without trees. Green spaces are essential to our mental and physical well being. We need the trees to be maintained on our roads and that is of real importance for our lives. I can’t imagine a Bristol with unmaintained trees, it wouldn’t be Bristol.

    Bristol is lucky to have so much green space and many trees. We should be proud of this and maintain it.
