Trees are amazing in so many ways – they can help to mitigate the effects of climate change by absorbing carbon and producing oxygen, they capture pollutants in their leaves and bark, reduce noise, provide food and habitats for wildlife. They are also able to communicate with each other underground via their root systems.
What trees do we have in and around Shaftesbury ? How can we look after them? Plant more in the right places and increase the town’s local distinctiveness and attractiveness?
Bernard Ede, landscape architect, will argue that we need a strategic plan to create green infrastructure for the town with trees and hedges as a major component, and will tell us about the trees that can best cope with a more challenging climate.
Founded in 2002, Shaftesbury Tree Group is a voluntary organisation working to safeguard the trees of the town.
