Arbor Day: Time for Trees

With Charlotte Bancroft and Dan Lambe

The significance of a day for communities to celebrate the efforts of those who plant and advocate for trees in and around their urban forests. It's an opportunity to engage the public in more than a drive for planting with a focus on large numbers of trees without consideration, but of the importance of getting it right. Arbor Day UK seeks to give the industry visibility and credibility whilst encouraging growth. Empowering school children in tree planting activities could lead to present and future growth.
